1921 was the year that Lalique opened his Verrerie d'Alsace and this piece would have been one of the earliest pieces of glass produced at the works. The factory based in Wingen-Sur-Moder became one of the most significant in the history of glass and possibly the most significant of the 20th century. It is from this venue that the majority of Lalique's incredible contributions to glassware were produced. Most of the Lalique glassware that we offer is of the deco period this is a late example of the art nouveau movement and would make an exceptional addition to any collection.

Following what eventually proved to be the ill fated Treaty of Versailles France demanded that the Alsace region, previously forfeited after the Franco Prussian War of 1870, be returned to France. The French government then set up cost effective business initiatives in  the region to attract industry and commerce. Rene Lalique saw the opportunity to set up a new state of the art glass works in a region that already had a reputation for glass making such as that located in Meisenthal and St Louis- les- Bitche in neighbouring province of Lorraine .
