Rene Lalique Bird Dampierre Vase Bowl Signed French Crystal Glass Art Nouveau. This is a beautiful crystal vase in the "Dampierre" design by Rene Lalique. It is rendered in frosted and clear crystal glass and beautifully detailed with three-dimensional birds around the entire outside of the bowl.The foot and upper edge are starkly plain in contrast, but this artistic choice offers a place for the viewer's eye to rest as they take in each exquisitely detailed ridge and feather of the main design. The bottom of this piece is hand-etched with a signature reading "Lalique France". It stands 5" tall and is approximately 4.75" in diameter. "Dampierre" is also the name of several communes in France, but is is unclear whether this design was produced with a specific location in mind. Lalique became renowned in the 1920s for the production of exquisitely fine crystal decorative pieces, and has continued to produce these elegant wares today. The designs range from classic to ultra-modern.
With the incorporation of birds and leaf-detailed ridges on this vase, this design exemplifies the art nouveau movement. This artistic period in the early 20th century focused on the incorporation of natural and floral motifs onto extremely detailed pieces that were often functional, and had its roots in France. Though this is an estate piece, it is in very good condition without any noticeable issues.
