R.Lalique Rampillon Observations and Photos - What you would have received if you purchased this file!

The R.Lalique Rampillon Vase is a press mold vase, made under very high pressure as glass is forced into the mold and pressed up against the design on the mold wall. The high pressure enables the details to come out sharper in the design. We have identified 5 different molds that were used during the lifetime of the R.Lalique Rampillon Vase. The only difference in any of these molds is the underside of the base. Some have molded signatures, and the shape of the base rim (the outer ring of the underside that the vase actually sits on) is slightly different among some molds. All Rampillons have three things in common. First, they are all exactly 12.7 cm tall, or 5 inches. If you are looking at any Rampillon that is even 2 mm shorter than this, we recommend you don't buy it. This vase is not wildly rare (except green ones rarely appear), and another will come along. If you are collecting this vase in the different colors, and displaying them together, you are not going to want the short one, no matter if the seller claims it was made that way or not. The second thing about every R.Lalique Rampillon is the polished area of the inside of the top rim. If you run your finger up the outside of this vase to the top, you will feel it rounds a bit over the top and then angles down into the vase for a few mm, then drops down the inside from that large inner bevel, straight into the vase. Many times this polished inner angled edge, a big bevel if you will, is mistaken as chips being polished out. But his is the way that they were finished at the factory. If the rim were chipped, the vase would not have the height mentioned previously. From the photos, you will see the shape of this inner bevel area. The third thing they all have in common is that they all are identical other than the underside of the base and slight variations in this inner bevel. The only reasonably common flaws we have found in the R.Lalique Rampillon, are small air bubbles in the lozenges, and the occasional mold press line (those wandering lines that appear in a good amount of RLalique press mold glass that do not reflect light as a crack would). If the bubbles are small, not broken thru the inner or outer surface of the vase, and not obtrusive, and if there is a dull mold press line or two that is not obtrusive, then we don't consider either of these common issues a problem. Common damage (other than someone having dropped the vase and cracked it) are chips to the lozenges, and the polishing of those chips. So check the lozenges reasonably carefully to be sure they are all the same size. This vase is small and can easily be grasped with one hand, so you don't see the rim and base chips (from hitting a shelf with the top or bottom of the vase as you put it up for display, or from falling over) with the frequency that you see them on some other models. For colors, this vase has appeared in yellow, gray (topaz), green opalescent, and opalescent. The green is the rarest of the bunch by far. This vase has also appeared several times in radiated purple. And of course, it appears in clear and frosted with various color patinas. There are no fakes or copies that have ever appeared. As with most RLalique vases, there is a huge difference in the attractiveness of the opalescent models based on the strength of the opalescence. We have seen one example with nearly white lozenges that was extremely attractive. Gray and green colored models have appeared with varying intensity of color. Overall, a small, sharp, art deco, attractive and popular model that lights up extremely well in a display case.
