Designed by Marie-Claude Lalique, the Zeila Panther embodies the feline strength and grace. The slim silhouette is enhanced by powerful muscles covered with crystal fur sculpted by thousands of luminous spots. René Lalique founded his firm in Paris in 1885, and soon became a celebrated jeweler whose designs contributed significantly to the Art Nouveau movement at the turn of the century. In the 1920s, an order for perfume bottles led him to develop a glass-making technique that would endure as Lalique’s signature characteristics: iced surfaces, elaborate or partially realistic patterns in relief, and occasionally applied or inlaid color. 14 1/3"L x 4 1/3"H. Made in France.
