Lalique is a French luxury glassmaker founded by renowned jeweller and glassmaker, Rene Lalique, in 1888 when he also registered the “RL” mark.

He first became well known as a Parisian jeweller and by 1905 he had already opened a third jewellery shop. This shop was located at Place Vendome where he not only showcased his jewellery but also his glass works, which was his first love. It just so happened that this shop was also close to famous Parisian perfumer, Francois Coty. At the time perfumes were sold in steel bottles and Francois Coty asked Rene to produce ornate glass perfume bottles for his perfumes. Soon these became very popular and famous.

Rene Lalique started producing glass objects in his country Villa in 1902 and as demand grew for his artworks, he opened his first glassworks in Combs-la-Ville in 1909. By 1921 a new production facility opened in Wingen-sur-Moder, which remains the production facility til this day. From its founding until the 1900s–1910s, Lalique was one of France's foremost Art Nouveau jewellery designers. In the first two decades of the twentieth century, Lalique transitioned into one of the world's most renowned makers of artistic glass objects.

Rene Lalique died in 1945 and his son, Marc Lalique, took over the business signing works with “M.Lalique”, later “Cristal Lalique” and “Lalique France”. The company transitioned to produce crystal under Marc.

In 1977, following Marc’s death, his daughter Marie-Claude Lalique took control of the company and changed the mark to Lalique®️France. She sold it to Pichet in 1994 who then sold it to a partnership of Art & Frangrance and Financière Saint-Germain in 2008. Since 2010, Cristal Lalique has been wholly owned by Art & Fragrance, who rebranded in 2016 as Lalique Group.

Today Lalique produces luxury jewellery, decorative items, interior design, perfumes and art. At Ghorbany Benmore we have magnificent Lalique pieces in stock from Rene, Marc & Marie-Claude Lalique.
