When I started learning how to make jelwery one of the periods that most captured my mind was Art Nouveau✨⠀
The dream like reality tapped into my inner princess of the forgotten times ;) ⠀
And the delicateness of the skill and detail in itself was dream like. Spider hands of the master jewelers crafting the metal webs for special enameling techniques that still tickle our minds :) #roster#inspiration#renelalique#pliqueajour ⠀
Rene Lalique Cockerel Diadem - 1898 - Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, Lisbon⠀
Two antique René Lalique WW1 medals to be added to the store later today- PM me if you are interested for an IG price!! Both are gilt medals made Lalique to ‘honour, support & raise funds for French common soldiers’- this was in a day established in Dec 1915 by the French Govt. The ‘Journèe Du Poilu’ means day of the infantryman; Poilu was a nickname for them as the British had ‘Tommy’. The ‘Orphelinat Des Armèes’ was for the orphans of these soldiers; this still has the original ribbon & pin. Both signed by R.Lalique #Lalique#renelalique#WW1#worldwarone#medals#France#French#Ypres#france 🇫🇷 #FranceWW1#gilt#antique#antiquelalique#artnouveau

This is where it all began, with the first five mascots of the eventual 30 produced. They are, from left: Cinq Chevaux (five horses); Naïade (water nymph); Faucon (falcon); Comète (comet); and Sirène (mermaid). Lalique’s association with cars in many ways began here, with the striking Cinq Chevaux on the far left of the group. The idea for the mascot was suggested by André Citroën to mark the display of Citroën’s 5CV model at the 1925 Paris Exposition. With that clever move, Lalique’s work was introduced to the masses.
The first of the 30 mascots, however, was the 1920 Sirène, which although not intended as a car mascot, is thought to have been converted for automotive use by Breve Gallery. It’s often overlooked, which is why you’ll sometimes read that there are 29 Lalique designs.
The wonderful Comète was inspired by Citroën’s use of the Eiffel Tower, which was lit up using 250,000 lights, each letter of Citroën formed from the shapes of flaming comets.
The entirely complete set of 30 @lalique mascots is available for viewing at Pullman Gallery by appointment only.
Tracing the history of René Lalique (1860-1945), this unique exhibition at the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum observes the elegant works made of glass during the zenith of Art Deco, early in the 20th century. The exhibition is available until April 7th.
A necklace that helped define my career…..
While in college I came across a necklace in an art book that would forever change my life. It led me down a path of loving the Art Nouveau and Art Deco 20th century decorative arts-- inspired my senior jewelry thesis and shaped who I was early in my design career.
It would be years later before I saw this necklace again-
I had just moved to NYC after graduating from college and one snowy night decided it was a good time for a ‘NYC-Adventure’. I wandered around the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) and in a far corner in a display travene I spotted THE necklace. Only this time the extraordinary necklace I had seen years before in a book I was able to actually see ‘in person”. I learned that few weeks later it would be removed from exhibit.
That is… until last year, in 2019 when it was put back on display for the MET’s ‘Jewelry, the Body Transformed’ exhibit… and was luckily able to take this video to share with all of you.
In 1938 ontwierp René Lalique deze vaas Bacchus. 17,7 cm hoog, de basis uitgevoerd in helder glas en rondom voorzien van een fries met daarop een voorstelling in reliëf.
De figuur op de vaas is een satyr of sater. Dit vrolijke en ondeugende mythologische wezen, half mens half bok, staat symbool voor de ongerepte natuur ofwel de geboorte, want dat is wat 'natus' betekent in het Latijn.
De satyr zien we vaak in het gezelschap van de wijngod Bacchus, het symbool van de roes, dronkenschap en vreugde. Hun samenzijn is geen toeval, want Bacchus en de satyr houden er dezelfde levensstijl op na: instinct boven rede, anarchie boven orde en overvloed boven matigheid... #renelalique #artdeco #museum #hanzestaddoesburg
What we want is peace. What I love is a smile. The important things are you. Everything else is just a tool to feel and communicate it. This is my favorite Hong Kong Lunar New Year custom. Raising a lot of daffodils from bulbs and celebrating a new year. The fresh scent drifts throughout the house and everyone smiles. Like these flowers, get along well and be bright. This year, we finally realized it in Japan. This glass bowl is what I have got just to do this and has been kept very very carefully. It was arranged slightly chic at tatami room too. Those were quite inspiring when I saw them in reality.

I’m never in a hurry to fill any collection I have . I know eventually I see everything. I picked these in two different places and both I paid 2 bucks for. The are small pieces but I know I will find bigger in time. They are Rene Lalique!! You only have to say his last name and most people know Who he is. He is on the level of Tiffany. So take the time to get familiar with his work. I constantly look at high end pieces so I know what to look for. Happy Picking!!
Of the 30 @lalique mascots, this is arguably the most famous. It’s Victoire, sometimes known as Spirit of the Wind, made in 1928.
More than any other Lalique mascot, it absolutely epitomises Art Deco style, with the hair stylised into a typically strong geometric shape.
With mouth agape, it’s often said to be rather androgynous in look. Victoire’s ‘hair’ can be prone to damage, making perfect examples such as this extremely rare and sought-after.

More René Lalique at his Art Nouveau peak! One of a pair of slightly mismatched bracelets, c. 1900, of seed pearls, plique-à-jour enamel and 18k gold. These would have been worn together, one on each arm, possibly created for the 1900 Paris Exposition.
