René Lalique was a revolutionary French glass designer whose life, career, and artistic style spanned both the Art Deco and Art Nouveau movements. Lalique was known for his perfume bottles, vases, jewelry, and automobile hood ornaments. His elegant press-molded designs play upon the contrast of clear and frosted glass and incorporate subjects such as the female form, animals, and foliage. Lalique wedded the notions of decorative and useable, creating objects that consumers sought out as both artistic and functional.
