Lalique’s Colorfull Sea

Lalique Fish Seahorse

People who know me a bit, they know I’m a huge, I mean Huge Lalique lover. Especially the Art Deco inspired item. In the years I have a nice collection of perfume bottles by Lalique, vases, lamps and many more. Not only in the traditional clear with satin finish, but also in black crystal. Normally I’m not a great lover of colors, but some years ago I started to collect their famous frog collection. Now I rediscoverd the fishes… And putting them together the Lalique magic begins….
