Lalique’s glassware collection will fascinate all crystal lovers. The exquisit details and light in these pieces make each of them unique
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.
