Rene Lalique Glass

Lalique glass, characterized by its high quality lead crystal and frosted or enameled surface, has been made in France since the 1890′s. Rene Lalique (French 1860 to 1945) began as a jeweler making glass paste jewelry before being asked to design perfume bottles for the Coty Co. His designs were so successful and well received that he was quickly recognized as one of the country’s leading glass designers. Much of the glass made during Rene Lalique’s lifetime was marked “R. Lalique”. After his death the “R” was dropped, and still later pieces were marked “R. Lalique, France” and “Lalique France”.
