Lalique colour and pattern query
« on: September 27, 2006, 01:44:15 PM »
I've just bought this vase purely because the colour is so fantastic. I think the pattern is Suage, but I've never come across a piece of Lalique in this colour it's a very rich iridescent teal. The picture doesn't really do it justice, but after 8 attempts this one is the truest likeness.

I'm guessing it is late 1920's as it has the raised moulded R Lalique and France in script afterwards, but if anyone can confirm the pattern as Suage and comment on the colour it would be appreciated.

Lalique colour and pattern query

Hi

My machine only gets a bad picture from your posting -probably my fault

but its good enough to see it is indeed a Sauge, designed 1923 produced until 1947.

I can't quite get the colour, but Rene Lalique did  so many differebt Blues -some have names -electric blue,  teale etc, but many don't - so people seem to invent there own names for them (mighnight blue, boromee blue etc).

There have been quite a few fake Blue Rene lalique vases coming out of South America recently -but I don't think Sauge is one of them
(and they don't usually have France in script)

A very nice vase if its perfect!

Cheers

Mike

Thanks Mike it is perfect and the colour is a real rich teal with a light irridescence as the light catches it, so I'm thrilled with it.
