Opalescent Glass

Opalescent glass is one of my favorite materials and noone could shape it better than the two French Maitres Verriers, glass masters of the 1930's, Rene Lalique and Marius Ernest Sabino.  I have collected a few pieces over the years and I never cease to be amazed by their delicate coloring.

comfortable, shimmering, light, inexpensive. Moroccan, silver and opal glass. love.

I got this Lalique heart and I never stop wearing it. It goes with everything as it changes color depending on the color I wear. such is the beauty of opal glass

and a lovely object
This sweet fish was given to me by the house of Lalique during a Designer Showhouse in which I participated ; how could they have known I am a Pisces and that I love opalescent glass. They must have a crystal pressed glass ball designed by Lalique.

and other pieces, to be admired...
Sabino was inspired by the Eiffel Tower like many of his contemporaries
