Lalique Shivers Owl
Designed by René Lalique's granddaughter, Marie-Claude in 1993, the owl is a symbol of wisdom, a night hunter that inspires both fear and fascination. René Lalique founded his firm in Paris in 1885, 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. 2 3/4"L x 3 1/4"H. Made in France.
