The name of this vase is a reference to the Esterel Mountains in southeastern France, in the departments of Var and the Alpes-Maritimes in Provence. To the east are the cities of Mandelieu and Cannes and to the west are Saint-Raphaël and Fréjus. The massif lies parallel to the coastline, which is called Corniche de l'Esterel there. This area is known for its eucalyptus trees whose roots reach into the Mediterranean and can absorb so much water. As a result, the area recovers very quickly after a natural fire. As a result, the term Esterel is associated with rapid recovery and resilience. Something that Lalique has fully embraced.
The vase is blown in three-ply opalescent glass with the decorated part matted and coloured with aqua blue patina. The vase is still clean, clear and in sublime condition.
