Its installation was facilitated by President Alexandre Millerand who liked René Lalique's works very much. LALIQUE's glass was in such heavy demand that he opened in 1921 a second factory at Wingen-sur-Moder in Alsace, in the east of France. For René LALIQUE, 1925 was the summit of his career as a glass artist.
The LALIQUE style was expressed mainly by the contrast between clear and frosted glass, sometimes with the addition of a patina, enamels, or colouring within the glass itself. During this period, he participated in large scale decorative and architectural projects for the Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits, and others such as the ocean liner "Normandie " and St Matthew's church in St Helier, Jersey. He also took part in the great exhibitions held in Paris during this period - the Colonial in 1931, the Rétrospective in the Pavillon de Marsan at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in 1933, and the Paris World Fair in 1937. He left the Place Vendôme and opened in 1935 a new shop at 11, Rue Royale in Paris.The factory in Alsace was occupied by the German Army during the second world war. René LALIQUE died on 1st May 1945 in Paris without having seen the kilns of his factory re-lit and his works of art once again in production. Submit Best Offer, All Offers Will be Considered.
