R. LALIQUE 1914 PLATE CHASSE CHIENS - DOG HUNT BIRDS
Price: $2000.00
Antique glass and enamel plate by Rene Lalique. ''Chasse, Chiens'' - dog chase, designed France in 1914. Measures slightly under 8-1/2 inches (21.6 cm) diameter. Made of clear glass with tan / sepia tones and pearly iridescence in the carved out sections. The border of the dish is decorated with an intaglio ring of pheasants and foliage. Elongated birds in pairs, long necks stretched out and bending towards each other, alternating with branches overlaid on each other. Almost the entire surface of the bowl of the plate is covered in a rounded triangle of foliage, each section featuring a pair of hounds. The bodies of the dogs are fantastically modelled and the glass is pearly iridescent, adding a shimmer to their short coats. They are surrounded by detailed foliage, overlapping in a style typical of the Arts and Crafts Tradition. The center of the design consists of negative space, cleverly forming a Fleur de Lis. Fabulous detail to the dogs and leaves. The design works on both a figurative and abstract level. Interest is added by the strong contrast between the textured coloured sections, the clear glass and the iridescence. There is an engraved R. LALIQUE signature. Condition: no chips/cracks/damage. Minor surface wear, commensurate with age. This plate is #3001 in Marcilhac and guarranteed to be genuine R. Lalique. Marcilhac informs us that this glass and enamel plate (assiette) appear in the catalogues of 1928, 1932 and 1937 and was discontinued after 1947.I had this fascinating email and would very much like to thank the sender for sharing the information with me as well as for the kind words: ...Your plate is indeed region 1914 but the R was added later. The script LALIQUE signature with an R was introduced in 1919 before that date the signature was used without an R and also in case of poor legibility of a moulded signature with an R. The R on your plate was absolutely added later by someone who didn,t know this. Still your plate is unique and absolutely region 1914 but not because of this added R. Regards, B.
