Vintage Lalique Limited Edition Clear and Satin Finished Glass Macao Vase - image 1 of 15

This large signed and numbered limited edition Lalique vase is titled Vase Macao and features a parrot motif executed in deep relief. The two birds are posed back to back as mirror images and have highly detailed heads and beaks in clear and satin finish crystal which function as handles. The body of the vase is densely covered with stylized feathers and also sports a satin finish.

Lalique released the Macao vase in 1999 in a limited edition of 99 with this being number 86/99 produced in clear and satin crystal. The piece comes complete with its original label, fitted case and signed paperwork. The vase measures 13" tall, 10" across at its widest and is 5" in diameter at the rim. It weighs in at just under 17 pounds. The vase is in very good vintage condition and has felt pads applied to the base.

According to the document Lalique produced for this piece "The tropical forest has been able to preserve, amidst is abundant, luxuriant vegetation, species of the rarest and most outstanding exotic birds. The Cockatoo bird, in the Maya culture, was a symbol of fire and solar energy. Lalique's skillful technique is reflected in this exclusive piece; like a magnificent trophy, two bold heads of Cockatoo birds, with their powerful beaks and soft plumage curve outwards from both sides of the vase. The finely etched stylishly shimmering feathers decorate the satin-finished crystal vase. This vase, sculpted in the tradition of the exceptional 'savoir-faire' of Lalique's master glassmakers, is destined to become a collector's item."

A striking and dramatic decorative object displayed on its own or filled with flowers.
