Vases by Lalique
Vases by Lalique are synonymous for haute-couture crystal glass of the finest quality. Lalique vases are exceptional ornaments that are very eye-catching. Some of the Lalique vases have even attained iconic status. The “Mossi” vases provide a good example with their expressive visual language. Instead of the outer surface being thoroughly smooth, the surface of these crystal glass "Mossi" vases from Lalique is covered with numerous little protrusions which have the effect of breaking the light up into a thousand little pictures, rather like a kaleidoscope.
The colour brilliance of the crystal glass vases from Lalique is unique. It takes years of training for a Lalique master glass blower to achieve this sparkling result. All Lalique vases continue to be handcrafted and cut in France from the finest crystal glass. The artisans have to work many hours to achieve this perfect result.
The art deco designer and company founder René Lalique created an ode to feminity with his (in)famous ”Bacchantes” vase. René Lalique designed this vase in 1927 and its depiction of naked ladies dancing caused a real sensation at the time.
