The Owl, the symbol of wisdom, inspired Lalique to create this decanter in 1995. Evoking an antique bas relief style, the satin-finish repeating motif is set against a contrasting shimmering background of swirling waves. A truly technical masterpiece, the intricate frieze gives great depth to this magnificent crystal creation. Rene Lalique founded his firm in Paris in 1885, and soon became a celebrated Art Nouveau jeweler. In the 1920s, he developed a cutting-edge glassmaking technique that would become the foundation of this enduring brand. 5" diam. x 9 1/4"H; 28.74 oz. Made in France.
