During this period, he designed Lalique’s famous “Serpent” vase as well as the “Tourbillons” vase, two of the most highly priced and extremely collectable pieces by “Lalique”.
In 1927, he worked at Daum to design the Verreries D’Art Lorrain near Luneville. Between 1937 and 1940 d’Avesn managed the Verlys glassworks.
