    • René Jules Lalique (1860 – 1945) was a French glass designer known for his creations of glass art, perfume bottles, vases, jewellery, chandeliers, clocks and automobile hood ornaments. He started a glassware firm, named after him, which still remains successful. By 1890, Lalique was recognized as one of France's foremost Art Nouveau jewellery designers; creating innovative pieces for Samuel Bing's new Paris shop, Maison de l'Art Nouveau. He went on to be one of the most famous in his field, his name synonymous with creativity, beauty and quality. In the 1920s, he became noted for his work in the Art Deco style. He was responsible for the walls of lighted glass and elegant coloured glass columns which filled the dining room and "grand salon" of the SS Normandie and the interior fittings, cross, screens, reredos, font of St. Matthew's Church at Millbrook in Jersey (Lalique's Glass Church). His earlier experiences in Ay were his defining influence in his later work. As a result, many of his jewelry pieces and vases showcase plants, flowers and flowing lines. Calouste Gulbenkian (1869–1955), the famous collector, was a friend of René Lalique’s for fifty years, as well as a great connoisseur of the various activities of this versatile artist. Between 1899 and 1927 he acquired eighty extraordinary works of art directly from the artist, the world’s largest collection of jewelery, art objects, artistic glass, and drawings by René Lalique. Today, these are conserved in an exclusive space inside the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum in Lisbon.

    • Eagles In Mulberry Branches - dog collar plaque Rene Lalique was one of the few artists to successfully make the transition from Art Nouveau to Art Deco. The carry over of concepts from Art Nouveau to Art Deco allowed certain artists to bridge the gap between the two closely related styles; while the almost opposite natures they embodied prevented many from successfully making the transition. It must be noted that neither Art Nouveau, nor Art Deco, were purely decorative styles. In fact, the ascription of a uniquely ornamental value to Art Nouveau goes against a core tenet of the expounders of late nineteenth century modernism. Art Nouveau had, after all, inherited from the Arts and Crafts movement, as well as from Aestheticism, the Japanese ideology of acknowledging a unity between the so-called fine and decorative arts. According to one biographer: In 1900 at the age of 40, he was the most celebrated jeweler in the world and an Art Nouveau artist and designer of magnificent proportions. But by 1925 at the height of the Art Deco era he was the most celebrated glassmaker in the world.
