Renée Lalique, Brooch, c. 1900

Gold, émail plique à jour, diamonds. 6, 25 cm in hight.

 

"Besides the multimillionaire collector Calouste Gulbenkian, the great museums of the world also ran to Lalique's jewellery store, paying exorbitant prices. Leipzig Museum, for instance, acquired a brooch and an ornamental comb for several thousands French francs."

 

Scanned and quoted from the book "Art Nouveau" by Gabriele Fahr-Becker.
