The "Hirondelle" ("Swallow") bookend/paperweight was designed and first produced by René Lalique in 1928. This version had a black glass base. René revised the design in 1942. The piece on offer is of this later design (Hirondelle-B). This later design is still in production.

The bookend/paperweight is of recent manufacture.

The base is engraved "Lalique ® France".

The bookend/paperweight measures approximately 8 cm wide, 8.5 cm deep and stands 15.5 cm tall.

The bookend/paperweight is in excellent condition. The bases show minimal wear as the original felt pads are still in place. There is no original packaging.
