A quintessential example of Art Deco jewelry design, this stunning glass necklace is the work of the legendary artisan René Lalique. Eleven molded glass beads are set along the strand, which is known as the Petites Fleurs necklace. Reflecting the geometric elegance that defines the Art Deco style, this necklace represents the perfect marriage of Lalique's two great talents: glassmaking and jewelry design. 

René Lalique remains one of the most popular sculptors and designers of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. Combining precious materials such as gold and gemstones with delicate enamel and glass, Lalique's jewelry creations rejected traditional gem-centric designs in favor of overall aesthetics. As a result, Lalique's hand-crafted creations such as this necklace are among the most extraordinary designs of their era. Other rare examples of René Lalique's jewelry creations can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Walters Art Museum (Baltimore) and Toledo Museum of Art (Ohio).
