R Lalique. LALiQUE DEUX FAISANS BROOCH

A VERY RARE RENE LALIQUE 'DEUX FAISANS' BAR BROOCH

A superb example of the very rare 'Deux Faisans' glass bar brooch in a gilded mount produced by Rene Lalique in 1911.

Rene Lalique started his career as a fine jewellery maker and goldsmith and working in the art nouveau design movement he wanted to create beautiful figural shapes to insert in his creations. He could not carve precious stones to the detail that he required and so turned to moulded glass to achieve his desired effect.

He is famous for his extravagantly complicated and beautiful creations made from gold and silver with fabulous gem stones and enamels and augmented by finely executed glass motifs. These items were available only to the most wealthy clients but early in the 20th Century he wanted to appeal to a wider clientele and so started making buttons, brooches, pendants and bracelets in glass, or precious metal with glass.

As his skill in glass decoration improved he moved away from making jewellery to become the renowned Art Deco glass designer working on considerably larger creations.

The 'Deux Faisans' brooch is one of his earliest attempts to produce a stunning art nouveau glass creation to be worn by a wider clientele.

The design of the brooch shows two birds moulded in the glass, the details highlighted with blue 'patine' and mounted in a reflective silver backing stained with blue and gilded to the reverse.

C 1911

Width: 8.5 cm.

Signature. Signed in capitals 'LALIQUE' in the mount and his goldsmith's touch mark.

R Lalique. LALIQUE PENDANT x 3

THREE VERSIONS OF THE RENE LALIQUE ‘FIORET' PERFUME PENDANT

Two versions of the Rene Lalique pendant designed for FIORET PERFUME and a rare brooch presentation of the pendant.

The Rene Lalique glass pendants show a nude maiden standing or kneeling amongst flowering boughs.

The 'Fioret Pendant' was originally designed by RENE LALIQUE in 1924 as a gift presentation attached by ribbons to a bottle of FIORET perfume. The glass medallion could be fitted with silk cords and a tassel to be worn as a pendant. The glass of the pendant is thin and the design required back-lighting for best effect and was never totally successful as a pendant unless it had applied enamel "patine" as in the two examples presented here.

A popular conversion at the time was to make the medallion into a brooch presentation mounting it in silver or gold. Many of Lalique's brooches have coloured reflective foil backings to back light the subject and the FIORET pendant mounted as a brooch with reflective foil backing produced a rarer but much more successful presentation. The holes for the cords of a pendant would be filled with precious or semi-precious cut stones; in this example garnets have been used.

TWO SUPERB RENE LALIQUE CAT STATUETTES

Two of Rene Lalique's most beautiful and popular designs, the Sitting Cat and the Crouching Cat, statuettes.

The first models of these RENE LALIQUE cat designs were produced in 1932 but they have remained such popular works of art that the Lalique factory has continued to produce them at different periods almost to the present day.

These two examples are in a lovely clear crystal with excellent detail still existing in the moulds and are typical of the 1970 - 80's production. The 'CATS' have remained a firm favourite with collectors over the years and the more recent examples from the Lalique factory are produced in a frosted, almost white surfaced glass, with much less detail in the moulds.

These are such beautiful creatures that they are one of the few modern production items that we are always happy to have in stock.

Design created in 1932. These models produced C 1970's & 1980's .
