Lalique are celebrating their 150th birthday by launching a rather unique colletion, the `Hommage á René`
The new `Hommage to René Lalique` collection re-examines and reinterprets the original iconic glass creations of René Lalique in crystal to celebrate the 150th anniversary of his birth in 1860.
A true homage to Lalique`s creator, the Perruches vase symbolises an original design that has been brought back to life. A fragment of plaster was found in one of René Lalique`s old workshops in the factory in Wingen-sur-moder, France. It was later discovered that Lalique had created it for a vase that was to be exhibited at the Museé d`Orsay in Paris. Here, given a new lease of life, the Perruches vase is restored to its former glory and made yet more special by its limited production.
Grey Bacchantes vase £2,900
Languedoc vase £4,200
A work of unparalleled beauty and displaying the young priestesses of the god Bacchus, the Bacchantes vase has become a lasting symbol of Lalique`s celebrated style and remains a top-seller throughout the world. Re-launched in 2010 in grey, its meticulous detailing, hand-carved by the master craftsmen at the Lalique factory, the Bacchantes vase remains a timeless icon in the Lalique crystal collection.
Amongst others in the collection, the Courlis vase stands out due to its striking jade green colour and captivating design. Depicting mysterious curlew birds migrating over the ocean to more moderate skies, the Courlis vase perfectly represents the values so important to René Lalique`s work.
Other items in the collection include the beautiful Cep decanter and tumbler, the Hirondelles perfume bottle with iconic swallows design and the remarkable Antoinette clock.
