Vintage Lalique Crystal Versailles Large Vase Glass Urn 13-3/4" H x 9" W France Rare (1 of 2 Available). This listing is only for the vase specifically described in the condition section and shown with the images attached with this listing. See Note 1 Below for details of the other vase that is available. Originally designed by René Lalique in 1939, the Versailles Vase was inspired by Medici vases.
This is a great example of how classic design can compliment contemporary interiors. The satin-finished and repolished crystal, a Lalique approach that is their signature style, exhibits a finely carved floral motif. Signed at the base Lalique France. Best we can figure this vase is circa late 1970's, but cannot be sure. Dimensions: 13-3/4" H x 9" W (at the rim) with 5 Square Base.
Weight of the piece: 19 lbs, 6 ozs. NOTE 1: We are listing two of these beautiful large vases separately since the pictures and detailed descriptions are slightly different see this link to see the other listing. NOTE 2: Used, but in overall very good condition for its age. Any yellowish color in the pictures is from the lighting and not the crystal which is beautifully uncolored.
This vase does not appear to have any chips or cracks that I can see or feel, except for one very tiny chip on one edge of the base (see picture) and 2 very tiny chips (one on the inside and one on the outside) of the flat surface on the top of the rim and they are about an inch from each other (see picture). The clear section of crystal from middle up to the rim is a bit cloudy when dry (see pictures), and seems to be clear when wet. There is some dirt in some of the ridges from use.
A few scratches in a few places just below the rim on the inside of the vase (see pictures). The bottom surface of the base has scratches from use (see picture). Does not come with the original box, packaging, or any related paperwork.See detailed pictures to know what you are purchasing. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
