René Lalique


Hand mirror, 'Lucanes'


circa 1898-1900


patinated bronze and mirror


35 x 18 cm ; 13 ¾ x 7 ⅛ in.

Very good overall condition consistent with age and use. This rare model presents with a cloudy brownish green patina when seen in person. There are traces of patina wear in some places, very minor losses of patina mainly located on the handle, on the nose of the figure and on edges and protruding parts. The mirror presents with hairline scratches, but not visually distracting. The mirror has been probably replaced at a later stage. The original fitted case is provided.
