Radiant Volubilis Yellow Opalescent R. Lalique Glass Plate
This yellow opalescent René Lalique glass plate has a fantastic Volubilis pattern of three high relief Morning Glory or starfish forms, circa 1927. The glass is hand carved with R. LALIQUE FRANCE, and engraved No. 383. The plate measures 8-1/2 inches and curves upwards about an inch and a half. The three central curves of the star create the three feet that prop up the plate ever so slightly. The feet look almost pinched, as if in motion still, swaying in the currents underwater. These stylized organic feet add a very romantic touch to Lalique's design. René Lalique (1860-1945) was known for creating luxury glassware items that helped define the aesthetics of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements in France. The pinnacle of his career as a master glass craftsman is considered to be the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Moderns in Paris. This plate is a stunning example of his signature style, where organic forms and images of nature in bold colors create an unique looking art glass piece. The beautiful pale yellow color is also quite rare in Lalique's opalescent glasswork, making this piece even more desirable. The plate is in great condition, with minimal scratches. The rim is in perfect condition making this an excellent Lalique piece for an art glass collection.
