Merles Et Raisins, Christmas Ornament 2021 Clear Crystal
Each year, Lalique creates an annual crystal ornament to celebrate the festive season — for 2021, it features the iconic Merles & Raisins motifs, designed in 1928 to adorn the legendary Orient-Express. 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.
