Fleurs de Cerisier Lacquered Box, Small
The savoir faire of lacquering wood is a thousand-year-old tradition in Asia. In Vietnam, Lalique met exceptional craftsmen who keep this heritage alive. With amazing talent and expertise, the skilled artisans fashion this box in carved wood coated with fifteen layers of lacquer. A satin-finished crystal motif, produced in the Lalique's factory in France, highlights each design. The encounter of these two know-hows — one of lacquer and the other, of crystal — gives birth to unique creations.
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.
