This is a vase. It was production directed by René Lalique. It is dated 1931 and we acquired it in 1969. Its medium is press-molded glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Lalique’s contributions to the 1925 exposition could be seen all over the grounds, most notably in a tall central fountain of glass that was lit at night, a motif picked up in a glass fountain that centered La Parfumerie, the fair’s perfume pavilion. In years following, the fountain remained a popular motif, evoked here in a series of graduated curls.
It is credited
Gift of Jacques Jugeat.
