Tiger, Gold Luster

With the power and grace of the great felines, this imposing and majestic crystal creature was created in celebration of the Chinese astrological Year of the Tiger. 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.
