Lalique: 3 generations of artists

LALIQUE is more than just a name, it is a highly talented family, comprising three generations of artists of international fame.The second generation of the LALIQUE family is represented by Marc (1900-1977), who succeeded his father in 1945 and founded a new era, that of crystal. Marc LALIQUE was a remarkable technician, inspired by the love of his art. He was destined to make his mark in the history of LALIQUE. Following his renovation of the war-damaged factory at Wingen-Sur-Moder, he replaced glass with crystal, leading to the world-wide fame of LALIQUE. During the Fifties he was also the creator of many works which preserve the LALIQUE style, and which also reflect the spirit of their age; an age which is currently being re-discovered today with great enthusiasm. Many of his creations have already found a place in museum collections and are in demand by numerous private collectors. Then Marie-Claude LALIQUE, third generation of artists, after Marc's death in 1977, became the artist of the company until 1996.
