Fight Against Maturity

If it says “Lalique” on the bottom…don’t toss it out

A woman who bought a plant and vase for £1 at a car boot sale has sold the glass container for £32,000. The owner, who has not been named, thought the vase was junk and was about to throw it away but decided to have it valued on the Antiques Roadshow.

Sunday’s programme from Dumfries House, East Ayrshire, will see the 1929 vase valued at £25,000 – the most expensive piece of glass seen on the show.

It was created by French designer Rene Lalique and is unique as the mould was broken in the production process.
