Note: In 1830 the French invaded and took control of what they called Alger in North Africa. It was nearly 10 years later in 1839 that they switched to calling it Algérie (Algeria) instead of Alger. But Alger came back about 10 years after that in 1948 when they divided their conquest into three administrative areas (departments). Alger became the geographically central department (flanked by the departments Oran and Constantine), and it also contained the city of the same name (present day Algiers). For the next 100 years, a period that encompassed Lalique's entire lifetime, the three departments, all bordering the Med, constituted the entire colony or province of French Algeria. It wasn't until the 1950's that the French annexed the large section south of their original conquest (the Sahara) to create what would become the largest country in Africa (11 times the size of the three departments) when it gained independence in 1962.

Also Note: This is not the only commercial model Lalique gave an Algerian associated name. See the Oran Vase and Biskra Vase where you'll find more France/Algeria information.

Also Note: Here is a link to a map of French Algeria showing the locations of the cities whose names were used by Lalique.

Also Note: There are no Alger plates or bowls.

Also Note: In the modern repros we show a typical Alger glass and also a snifter shaped Alger glass that was only made in crystal post-war. These modern snifter shaped glasses have appeared represented as pre-war glasses from time to time. They cannot be R. Lalique, and we felt this was our most useful place to call it out.
