Lalique Merles and Raisins Vase, Medium
In 1928, René Lalique designed the Merles & Raisins decorative panels, originally in created in pressed glass on a silver background and adorned the Cuban mahogany woodwork of the legendary Orient Express. Today, the Lalique Studio reinterprets this emblematic creation, in new expressions through vases and a bowl. The precious cultural heritage of the House thus comes to life in very contemporary shapes.

The Inspiration behind Lalique's Merles and Raisins Collection
Blackbirds with finely chiseled plumage indulge in an abundance of sweet grapes while the vines create an exceptional rhythm throughout a perfectly balanced composition. The richness of the decor conveys a sensation of profusion and of abundance. Highlighted by the purity of satin-finished crystal, signature of the House, these decorative objects brilliantly illustrate the timeless character of Lalique creations.
