Bowl 108_20


Bowl of opalescent art deco style pressed molded glass Dalia Pompon, unsigned, attributed to Pierre D’Avesn. The decorative way in which D’Avesn has used opalescent glass is absolutely exceptional. The different depths of glass and various contrasts between transparent, violet and opaque are pure geniusful.

French opalescent glass of this quality, displays multiple colours which are usually subjected to the light. The glass changes instantly and able to display a complete colour transformation. It is rare and famous catalog model.

Remarkable about this model is that its pattern may be found  to the one used on the box of the Lalique Parfum “L’AMOUR”. The analogy is easy to explain as the design is attributed to Pierre D’Avesn, who worked for Lalique at the beginning of his carrier.  To tribute this interesting remerk Lalique “L’AMOUR” Parfum 100 ml will be gifted to this bowl.

There are some tiny natural usage scratches for the object from 1930s (see pictures). The general condition is excellent.
