For over 130 years, Lalique has been a sculptor of light, creating timeless designs that endure through the ages. In celebration of the year 2023, Lalique is releasing the Bacchantes Vase, the Mossi Vase, and the Champs-Élysées bowl in a limited manner, offering a rare opportunity to own a piece of art that is truly unique. Each piece, numbered and hand-engraved, is a testament to Lalique's commitment to craftsmanship and exclusivity. Only a select number of these pieces will be available going forward, making them highly sought-after additions to any art collection.
Disturbing sensuality, captivating beauty, the voluptuous Bacchantes vase celebrates feminine beauty. One thousand numbered pieces. No more no less will be issued from the furnaces of the Lalique factory. For this "2023 Vintage", House Lalique anticipates a limited number of the iconic Bacchantes vase.
The result of many long hours of work, the Bacchantes vase crystallizes the exceptional know-how of Lalique craftsman, a legacy transmitted since 1927. The precious crystal is pressed into molds, preserved by the House over the decades. In the heat of the furnaces, the ring of antique muses takes shape. The metamorphosis has begun.
In the cold glass workshop, the bacchantes come to life. Their skin is sublimated with a satin-finish under the skillful hands and polishing wheels of the craftsmen. Between tradition and modernity, the techniques merge to bring out the light.
Inspired by the "most beautiful avenue in the world" and its majestic avenue of plane trees, the Champs-Élysées bowl, with its finely-ribbed crystal leaves, has been blossoming in the light since 1951. It is now available in a limited edition of 500 pieces.
Cultivating an exceptional know-how, the "Champs-Élysées" bowl is born in the manufacture's furnaces, in the hollow of a mould where the molten crystal is pressed.
In the cold glass workshops, the magic continues. Rigorously, patiently, Lalique craftsmen sublimate this crystallized nature. Each vein is meticulously crafted to achieve the precise contrast between matte and brilliance. The leaves of the Champs-Élysées bowl, with their beautiful reflections, vibrate in the light, as the famous Parisian Avenue shines.
Born in 1933 in the audacious imagination of René Lalique, the Mossi vase stuns the world with its kaleidoscopic aesthetic. This graphic illusion full of relief hides a magical alignment of crystal cabochons. Timeless, the Mossi vase is part of a limited edition of 500 pieces.
Thanks to the exclusive know-how, the House Lalique craftsmen manage to make emerge cabochons of bright crystal on a satin-finished surface. After the hot glass production, where the crystal is pressed, the technical challenge is confronted with meticulous work in the decoration workshops of our manufacture in Alsace.
The transparency of the illusory crystal beads is revealed. As clear as pure water, they contrast with the sandblasted backdrop from which they sparkle with effervescence.
