Decorative panel mounted as lamp


circa 1912


patinated and silvered moulded-pressed glass and chrome-plated metal


Engraved 998 at lower edge of the panel

Good overall condition consistent with age and use. The glass presents with dirt and surface scratches throughout. There are small dents along the edges and few losses at the corners as well as minor dents on the decor, but not visually distracting. The silver on the back is partially removed. The chrome plated metal base was added at a later stage. It presents with hairline scratches throughout.

Ce panneau à décor de pavot est un élément architectural créé par René Lalique pour le plafond magasin Coty à New York en 1912. La présence de l'argenture au dos du panneau permettait de réfléchir la lumière du soleil et ainsi animer l'intérieur du magasin. Par la suite démonté, ce panneau fut monté en lampe.

This poppy decorated panel is an architectural element created by René Lalique for the Coty store ceiling in New York in 1912. The presence of the silver on the back of the panel made it possible to reflect the light of the sun and thus to animate the interior of the store. Subsequently dismantled, this panel was then mounted in lamp.
