Avallon Vase from Lalique. In 2010, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of René Lalique’s birth in 1860, Lalique created the "Homage to René Lalique" collection. Lalique re-examined and reinterpreted iconic glass collection in crystal, work of a great artist often called the "Rodin of transparencies”, who is also know to be the inventor of modern jewelery and perfume bottles before becoming a master in the art of glass making. Pure crystal is harmoniously crafted with refinement and skill. This collection is the ultimate representation of artisanal skills, utmost precision and the fundamental values of Lalique; luxury, excellence and creativity.
