Caroline Turtle, Gold Luster
Crafted, carved and finished by hand, this charming crystal turtle is enhanced by gold luster detail. René Lalique founded his firm in Paris in 1888, and soon became a celebrated jeweler whose designs contributed significantly to the Art Nouveau movement at the turn of the century. In the 1920s, an order for perfume bottles led him to develop a glass-making technique that would endure as Lalique’s signature characteristics: iced surfaces, elaborate or partially realistic patterns in relief, and occasionally applied or inlaid color.
- Handcrafted crystal.
- Handmade in France.
- 5 1/2" long x 2" high.
