LALIQUE MOSSI VASE
The kaleidoscopic effect of the Mossi Vase is both a stroke of creative genius and a feat of technical mastery. René Lalique designed this flagship piece in 1933. His original choice of material was plain glass, which the company has transformed into the vibrant intensity of crystal. A genuine interior design accessory of modernity, the Mossi plays on the contrast between the brilliance of its cabochons and the frosting of its base.

LALIQUE MOSSI VASE
LALIQUE, a history that blends with the history of the decorative arts of the 20th century. René Lalique began his career as a jewellery designer, becoming the creator of the jewel par excellence of the modern age.
His passion for glass led him to create objects from the most common gift items to the most particular where transparency, workmanship, reflections make him achieve great international success.
The Lalique style comes from the artist’s drawing who creates, in total osmosis with crystal, an expression recognizable by the manual modeling of parts and assemblies that become sculpture, rich in details that give a particular contrast to the crystal, transparent and satin, transforming it into light sculptures.
The originality of the Lalique style is the result of a particular production process, which does not end with the hot processing of the crystal. This phase, in fact, is followed by a meticulous process of cold working of each piece, during which the expert hands of crystal artists embellish every detail and remove any imperfection. We are in the presence of an authentic work of sculpture, the edges are intensified, some details are emphasized as the movement of a hair or the expression of a carved face.
Each piece must go through several intermediate stages of processing and control before deserving the signature LALIQUE which is made by hand using a tip of diamond, as proof of its authenticity and quality.
