René Jules Lalique (6 April 1860, Ay, Marne 1 May 1945, Paris) was a French glass designer known for his creations of glass art, perfume bottles, vases, jewellery, chandeliers, clocks and automobile hood ornaments. Lalique was best known for his creations in glass art. In the 1920s, he became noted for his work in the Art Deco style. He was responsible for the walls of lighted glass and elegant coloured glass columns which filled the dining room and "grand salon" of the SS Normandie and the interior fittings, cross, screens, reredos and font of St.Matthew's Church at Millbrook in Jersey (Lalique's "Glass Church"). His earlier experiences in Ay were his defining influence in his later work. As a result, many of his jewellery pieces and vases showcase plants, flowers and flowing lines. Both unique and commercial works of René Lalique are in the collections of a large number of public museums around the world. We try to present the merchandise as accurately as possible.
