From the Hommage Collection, celebrating the 150th anniversary of Rene Lalique's birth. This exquisitely handcrafted piece honors the artist's legacy, reinterpreting one of his iconic creations for a new generation of collectors.
Originally imagined and created in 1934, Lalique's crystal "Ibis" vase has as its motif a mysterious and sacred bird. According to legend, the Ibis bird captures the mysterious light of the moon on its journey, and in ancient Egypt, the god Ibis gained knowledge and wisdom from this light. Approximately 7.4"Dia. x 9"T. Made in France.
A renowned name during the Art Deco movement, Lalique has continued to create exquisite crystal pieces for modern times. In 1926, Rene Lalique began manufacturing satin-finished vases, bowls, and statuettes. Today, his fine tradition endures with themes ranging from classical forms to ultramodern designs.
