There are exhibitors at the Maison Objet show in Paris that you cannot see at High Point, and it was a joy to marvel at the incomparable glasswork of Lalique. One of the world’s greatest glassmakers and jewelry designers of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco period, Rene Lalique was a brilliantly imaginative artist who died in 1945. The company that bears his name continues to set new standards, as in this interpretation of the Winged Victory statue in the Louvre. Lalique prices are not for the faint-hearted, but if the past is any guide, their value will only rise over time.

  1. I am glad the value will go up since I have a piece or two.

    What a piece above.I wonder if the color pieces are more valuable then the clear glass? Does it matter?
