Lalique Intaglio Crystal Letter Seal 'Naiade' Early Signature Post War

This gorgeous portrayal of a water nymph (naiade) was used upon a wide variety of items by Rene Lalique, its designer. From clocks, boxes, vases & bowls, this mesmerising image never fails to please wherever it is suitably displayed, as this letter seal example demonstrates with perfection.

Despite the relatively small size of these objects, the intended use of letter seals and the damage that is common to these pieces can make perfect examples difficult to find. This piece however is in mint pristine condition.

Intaglio moulding achieves remarkable qualities and refraction of light upon crystal glass objects and none more so perhaps than the designs which are produced by Lalique. Naiade, can be seen here to glisten & sparkle with jewel-like qualities, and the various depths which have been moulded into the crystal affords this piece with wonderful dynamics and dimensions. It is an exceptionally tactile item and it has an eye-catching appeal that is timeless.

It shows an etched signature using script and without an encircled letter "r"

Paperweight examples of "Naiade" were produced in very limited numbers by Crystal Lalique in c2010 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Rene Lalique, and there are also ashtrays of this same pattern.

This is a fine letter seal for the discerning collector and it represents a wise & worthy investment whilst also providing endless joy...
