A Rene Lalique Bowl Not Shown in the R Lalique Catalogue Raisonne Appears!

Rene Lalique Bowl GuiRene Lalique Bowl Gui Not Shown In the RLalique Catalogue Raisonne Appears: At on online auction which ended this week, a rare R Lalique Opalescent Gui Bowl, in the Coupe Ouverte version appeared. There is a record of this bowl having been made, but it has not been documented with a photograph in the Catalogue Raisonne due to its rarity. On page 766 of the 2004 Catalogue Raisonne, there is blank spot for this bowl, with no photo of course, as item number 3322. Obviously with the well documented nature of the works of Rene Lalique, it’s pretty rare to have an item appear that is not shown in the Catalogue Raisonne, so we thought we’d point this bowl out to you, and provide a couple of photos of the bowl. Rene Lalique Bowl GuiA nice example of the work of Rene Lalique in a form not often seen. Overall, a pleasant shaped bowl with good opalescence. And for a bit over $800, seems like a great buy for a rare product of the great Lalique. And at least for now 🙂 the new owner can point to owning a piece “that is so rare it’s not even shown in the Catalogue Raisonne!” That surely is not something most collectors can say.
