For the past 130 years, Lalique has been a defining name in the world of glass, a name synonymous the world over with grace of design and mastery of pioneering techniques.

In 1921, a new factory was opened in Wingen-sur-Moder which is still in use by the Lalique Company today. During his career, he would create over 1,500 glass designs including clocks, mascots (hood ornaments), paperweights, statues, lamps and light fixtures, vases, dishes, stemware, fountains, perfume bottles and much more.René Laliques artistic vision has inspired countless others, his creations some of the most sought after pieces of glass in the world.
