This year Lalique expands its Christmas offer with new motifs of a Christmas tree and bell, to stand on a table or hang on the tree. The dazzling reflections will beautifully adorn any home. A classic yet original gift from Lalique.

These Christmas ornaments are fashioned using the technique of presse(pressed-crystal). They are satin-finished and the relief is re-polished by hand to bring transparency and create plays of light.

The red sculptures are made with red gold, obtained by adding gold pigments to the crystal composition. This color needs to be annealed under high surveillance because it is a color which is revealed by fire: the longer the red cooks,the more it darkens.

René Lalique became synonymous with French Art Nouveau decorative arts. René Lalique was born in 1860 and first began designing fine jewelry in Paris in 1881. Lalique pursued increasingly more innovative experimentation in glass commencing around 1883. Early works used the familiar "lost wax" technique by which the model is made in wax while a mold is formed around the model. Then, the wax is melted and molten glass is poured into the mold. Lalique glass was made in this manner until approximately 1905 at which time the factory was redesigned for a larger production.

As such, the individual uniqueness of each example of Lalique glass came to an end with the end of the one-time only molding technique around wax models. The success of this venture resulted in the opening of his own glassworks at Combs-la-Ville in 1909. During the art nouveau period, Lalique was well known for a wide variety of objects including perfume bottles, vases, inkwells, decorative boxes, and bookends.

Lalique glass is lead based, either mold blown or pressed. Favored motifs during the Art Nouveau period were dancing nymphs, fish, dragonflies, and foliage. Characteristically the glass is crystal in combination with acid-etched relief. In addition to vases, clocks, automobile mascots, stemware, and bottles, many other useful objects were produced. While not well known, Lalique also experimented with bronze and other materials as well.
