Oursins is an elaborate motif of bubbles of different sizes which radiate from the center and imitate the stings of sea urchins. As is typical of many Rene Lalique designed opalescent pieces, its appearance ranges from almost clear to very blue with gold highlights, depending on lighting and angle of view. It is thicker in the middle than at the edge. The top surface is smoooth with all of the raised decorations on the under side. Dimensions: 10.25 inches in diameter and about 2 inches in height (25,5cm x 5,5cm).Weighs about 2lbs 1 ounce. The signature, R LALIQUE FRANCE, is under the base in the center.
This piece is in undamaged mint condition as when new. I could not find a single small scratch or fleabite.I did find a small air bubble and one smear in the glass from a crushed out air bubble (visible in my last photo). These both were created in the making of the piece. Minor factory defects like this are considered normal in glass of this age.
