This is a gorgeous opalescent Chiens bowl with Chasing Hounds and foilage designed by Rene lalique in 1921. The design is frosted and clear glass with six opalescent blue molded hounds chasing each other around the bowl with a foilage background. All decorations are in relief on the bowl's exterior.The inside of the bowl is smooth glass. The bowl measures 9.325 inches (23.9 cm) in diameter and about 3.5 inches high. Excellent condition for its age. I don't see any significant damage. I didn't even find any of the usual minor manufacturing defects typically found in R Lalique items from the 1920s. That includes a few small bubbles and straw marks. This one is fine condition. Like all R Lalique opalescent pieces the blue coloration appears more intense with a dark background. You can see this from my photos. The blue appears to be significantly more intense when the camera was looking downward at the dark wood background.
The R Lalique signature is molded into the bottom center of the bowl and the word France is hand etched beneath it. This bowl was handcrafted in René's Alsace France workshops.
