Note: Caravelle is the French word for the English caravel and the Portuguese caravela. It was a small, fast, and highly maneuverable 1 to 3 mast sailing ship with a shallow keel that was used extensively by the Portuguese and Spanish during the worldwide explorations of the 1400's through about the mid-1600's. It was the vessel of choice for Bartolomeu Dias and Christopher Columbus among countless others.

Also Note: This decoration was created in the spring of 1930. In December of that same year Lalique created both a Caravelle Ashtray and Caravelle Seal that have a simpler but similar design and share the same name as this decoration. And 8 years later in 1938 on the occasion of a royal visit by King George VI to France in June, Lalique added seagulls (mouettes) to this design to create basically a lighted Caravelle avec Mouettes Decoration to accompany the Mouettes themed tableware (plates, glasses, and candleholders) that was presented to the King as a gift from the City of Paris.
