‘Archers’ Ashtray, c. 1922
molded mark ‘R. LALIQUE’; engraved in script ‘France N: 278’
4 5/8” diameter x 7/8” high
An early Rene Lalique (1860-1945) Archers ashtray in frosted opalescent glass, made by Lalique et Cie, circa 1922. The decorative outer rim showcases molded relief of six Art Deco friezes of nude male archers around a circular concave inner bowl; the outer edge is slightly angled outwards. The base is clear with no frosting.
Condition: Antique, Very Good
For Accuracy: an antique it may show expected light signs of age. There are a couple of exteremely light marks on the inside of the bowl that may be from production, they are barely noticeable and blend in well with the surrounding area. This is a fine example of early Rene Lalique in a pure Art Deco pattern with a crisp mold and elegant frosted opalescent glass.
