Pivoines Votive

The soft glow of the candlelight filters through the finely sculpted crystal peony petals of this votive. A symbol of prosperity, beauty and honour, the peony is an emblematic flower, especially in China, where it is often depicted. 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. All Lalique crystal items are handcrafted in the company’s sole manufacturing site, which has been located in the Alsace region in France since 1921.
