Rene Lalique Plate: Are Two Lalique Plates Better Than One? Or Is A Lalique Plate A Lalique Bowl?

Rene Lalique Ondines PlateThe works of Rene Lalique, be they plates, bowls, or what have you (or what you don’t have?); they all have one thing in common. A picture is worth a thousand words!*** Or our point better made: Two pictures say it all!

Consider this online auction listing (cached version ****): LALIQUE SEA NYMPH “Ondines” Glass Plate Ebay Item No. 220777826015. Take a close look at the photos in that auction.

Are we missing something or is the first photo of an R. Lalique Ondines Plate, complete with signature and model number, while the second (and two others in the ad) are of a Calypso Bowl?

Rene Lalique Calyspo Bowl in Ondines AuctionWe wrote the seller and never got a satisfactory answer. How could we. Here is what the seller replied when we told her we think the photos might be of two different items:

I was informed the this plate is named “Ondines” however whatever it is called the photos are of the actual plate.

REALLY Crystal???

Obviously, we put the auction on the R Lalique Police Page.

Maybe it’s a two for one sale. Chameleon Bowl/Plate? Whatever, get your bids in early and often.

*** A picture is worth a thousand words: Whatever the modern origin of that phrase, consider this from Napoleon Bonaparte: “Un bon croquis vaut mieux qu’un long discours”! Basically: A good sketch is better than a long speech! Heck, it’s almost like he knew Rene Lalique was coming down the road.
