There are very few things on earth like Lalique crystal.
True, there are many other names in the world of art glass and crystal, but few are as sought-after as the works of the Parisian-born Lalique, named for its founder René Lalique. At the height of his career in 1900, Lalique had created jewellery pieces for such prestigious names as Cartier, Jacta and Boucheron, as well as monumental pieces for ocean liners and cathedrals, and his company continues to do so today.
His creations were pure and geometrical, yet softened with natural images of wildlife and the female form that brought spirit to each piece he created. Many tried to imitate his gracious works – and failed. You’ll understand why, when you see a piece of Lalique crystal with your own eyes.
The Dampierre Vase is a whimsical creation crafted from colourless crystal, and surrounded by a ring of frosted sparrows. Each bird seems ready to flutter forth from the vase, and plays with light in a different manner to the wholly transparent crystal bowl. It’s the very vision of Lalique, and something that can be treasured within your family for generations.
