This Interesting Relic Has Been Sold. Thank You!

LALIQUE STYLE PLAQUE FROM 
S.S NORMANDIE 

Presented is a frosted glass figural panel of two soaring nude females, possibly Bacchantes from Greek Mythology, frolicking over a rising sun. The amber plate is in the style of Rene' Lalique, recognized as one of the world's greatest glass makers and jewelry designers of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. Reportedly, it originally came from the TSS Normandie when the ship's interior decorations were auctioned in 1945. It is said to be the same as the one in pink that was later purchased by a collector of marine memorabilia in the 1960's from a ship's worker. Typical of many of Lalique's designs and technique as in the Lalique Bacchantes' $4000.00 vase pictured bellow. Its amber coloring is considered quite rare. The buyer must decide these things for himself.
 
 
                       Close-up of panel top section
 
                     Close-up of bottom section
 
SIZE & CONDITION: The glass, unsigned, panel is in the shape of a Isosceles Trapezoid and measures 10" across the top and 7 1/2" across the bottom. It is 10" tall, and is slightly curved. There are some small hairline and shallow surface molding cracks clearly shown in the photgraphs, a few small chips on the back edges which are not noticeable, and one small chip at the left bottom corner. Otherwise it is in fine condition. It is of a raised relief of two nudes frolicking over a rising sunrise in the center.
 
From Wikipedia's SS Normandie: This first class dining room could seat 700 diners at a time with 150 tables, serving them with some of the best meals in the world. This ship was a floating promotion of the most sophisticated French Cuisine of the period. However due to the design of the ship, no natural lighting could get in. The designers illuminated the room with twelve tall pillars of Lalique glass and along the walls stood 38 columns equally bright. In addition, two chandeliers hung at each end of the room. From this gorgeous display of lights came the nickname "Ship of Light". The French Line marketed the dining room as longer than the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles. 

BACCHANTES FROM THE GREEK:   (also known as Maeands, or Thyiades) played an important role in Greek mythology, literature, and art. These women worshipped the Greek god Dionysos, and, along with the notorious satyrs, formed part of the god's entourage. Indeed, Maenads frequently appear together with the frenzied deity by abandoning themselves to the wild, liberating energy of nature, in both myth and art.
