Beautiful vase, model Suzanne, designed by Hubert Lega for the collection of Val Saint Lambert of the year 1978. The vase is included in the catalogue of Val St Lambert. An excerpt can be found among the photos. The vase is in excellent condition and signed 'Val St Lambert' at the bottom, in addition, the vase also bears the gold label of Val St Lambert.
This vase is made of crystal with a lead content of approx. 33-40%, which is a lot higher than the legally determined 24%. It gives the piece a gorgeous quality and brilliance. The technique to make this bicoloured crystal is called doubling: the vase is mouthblown of clear crystal and after resting the crystal, it is doubled (also referred to as ‘bubbled’) with ruby-red crystal. Then the red crystal is cut back, exposing the clear crystal again. Subsequently, the facets are cut and the last step is a polishing with lava rock and a linen cloth. This labour-intensive process produces a marvellous result of the highest quality.
Today, Val-Saint-Lambert has a presence in more than forty countries, from the USA to Saudi Arabia, from Spain to Japan. It has become the business card of Walloon. The government took a stake in the company in the 1980s due the impending bankruptcy of the company. A Val Saint Lambert piece, famous for its marvellous double-coloured cut crystal, is a sought-after collector’s item or an expensive business gift, also for princes and diplomats. The company for instance supplied the glass seats (amongst others, because of the ‘frigidity’ of the material) for the World Exhibition in Sevilla. The offering has been broadened and modernised since, though the manufacturing of the unique pieces is still artisanal.
