This is a delightful ashtray pattern by Lalique. It has everything going for it.
It is perfection in crystal, and of the numerous figurative ashtray types produced in the round by Lalique it is also one of the tallest and the most intricately moulded.
Rather than to use intaglio & relief engraving upon a round disc of crystal, Lalique presents this piece crisply moulded & defined with thickly detailed decorative elements of design. It is the only designed ashtray that is pierced for example, which is a difficult moulding process. The wonderful halo/wreath of stylized leaves, form a beautiful frame for the central feature of this piece, a single bird in flight.
The wings of the bird, and also its tail feathers and its beak almost morph into the halo of leaves and the effect is quite simply sublime.
The leaves are an impressive 3/4 inches thick of the finest quality crystal, as is also the body of the bird...
These ashtray types offer affordable luxury to the discerning collector of glass by Lalique. One can quickly establish a wonderful collection at relative low cost without compromising quality, and their size makes each of them unobtrusive and easy to display as stand-alone items or when grouped.
This piece also represents a very wise investment which should not be dismissed. It is a gorgeous example of exceptional beauty, made by arguably the most inspirational glass factories in living memory.
