Lot Essay

The present lot conveys some of the most distinctive aspects of Lalique's style: his artistic talent for stylised naturalistic elements and his flair for composition. The elaborate floral and foliage motif on the piece is enhanced by the delicate staining and echoes Japonisme influences. René Lalique’s knowledge and admiration for nature is evident in his Art Nouveau period, but he continued to develop his interest and love of naturalistic motifs throughout his entire career.
This lot is illustrated in F. Marcilhac, René Lalique: Catalogue Raisonné de l'Oeuvre de Verre, Paris, 1994, p. 1013, fig. CP 232.
