R. LALIQUE "ORMEAUX" art deco Glass plate and Tasse de Glace (ice cream cup)

This auction if for TWO Rene Lalique items. They are both of the "ORMEAUX" design with stylised leaves arranged in concentric circles.

The first item is an "Ormeaux" plate, in clear glass, as per Marcilhac page 706 no 3050 . This is Assiette Ormeaux No 5, being 18.5 cms (7.2 inches) in diameter and 2 cms (0.8 inches) tall. This is a Rene Lalique piece, with the R Lalique etched signature (see third photo). It was originated in 1931 and was retired before 1947. In excellent condition, with no chips, bruises or blemishes, but a few scratches from wear to the base - which don't destract from its beauty.

The second item is an "Ormeaux" Tasse de Glace (an ice-cream cup) in clear glass, as per Marcilhac page 815 no 3886. It is 12.cm at its widest (along handle) and 5 cms high. This is a Rene Lalique piece, with the R Lalique etched signature (as sixth photo). It was originated in 1931 and was retired before 1947. In excellent condition - as per a few of the R Lalique pieces there are occasionally bubbles in the glass and there is one on the rim (see photo seven) and a couple of small other ones in the main body. The bubbles do not break the surface and are within the glass. These were still passed as "perfect" in the production process and are seen in much of the R Lalique glassware that predates 1947.
