LALIQUE René (1860-1945)
A great designer of Art Nouveau jewellery, Lalique set up a glass workshop in parallel in 1890. In 1895, his perfume bottles entered the collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts. In the 1920s, Lalique, master glassmaker, turned to Art Deco and combined luxury and aesthetics on a daily basis by creating everyday objects – vases, candlesticks, goblets and… car cabochons! After his disappearance, his son Marc continues the adventure and starts the crystal work. The "trademark" is still today the symbol of creativity combined with quality.
