Lalique transmits elegance and balance in its beautiful crystal figurines. Sculptures in different lights and colours hand made by Lalique.
Lalique, in other words, has helped shape the perception that crystal is more luxurious than glass. “Crystal is easier to sculpt and it’s easier to engrave,” Denz explained, “and it has a much higher luminosity.” Which is to say: Crystal looks shinier and fancier than glass. Even a casual observer can tell the difference. Lalique’s antique glass vases look almost matte, while the new vases glisten, almost as if they’re wet.
