Lalique’s professional career can be neatly divided into halves: the first, from
about 1880 to about 1907, when he earned his reputation as one of the most
renowned Paris jewelers; the second, until his death in 1945, when he turned
his hand to designing glass. In either field, he is considered among the most
important designers of the twentieth century.
