Origin France

Flask with Brush surmounted by Two Peacocks, 1904 - 1905 -

In Sigrid Barten, René Lalique Schmuck und Objets d’art 1890-1910 (Prestel 1989), a design can be found for this flask under catalog number 1722 (pencil and gouache on paper, 28 x 22 cm). Besides the stunning technical virtuosity which is displayed in this small object, this flask is quite exceptional because of its rarity. Up till now, only the design for this flask was known, and it is most likely a unique piece.
