About The Artist:

René Jules Lalique (1860-1945) was a French glass designer known for his creations of glass art, perfume bottles, vases, jewelry, chandeliers, clocks and automobile hood ornaments. Lalique's early life was spent learning the methods of design and art he would use in his later life. At the age of two, his family moved to a suburb of Paris, but traveled to Ay for summer holidays. These trips influenced Lalique's later naturalistic glasswork. Especially in the 1920s, he became noted for his work in the Art Deco style, with strongly colorred, organic objects in his very distinct style.

Frosted glass is made by the sandblasting or acid etching of a clear sheet of glass. It has the effect of rendering the glass translucent by scattering of light during transmission, thus blurring images while still transmitting light. It forms an uneven surface imitating what 'frosting' would look like on smooth surfaces.

This vase was introduced in 1984 and designed by Marie-Claude Lalique who became the third generation to continue the Lalique legacy, and the design is still available today.
