Sirènes (Mermaids) Perfume bottle

List of exhibits

René Lalique
c.1905
Moulded glass with the cire perdue technique, gold
on loan from Shai Bandmann and Ronald Ooi

An exceptional piece, dating from the period when René Lalique was at the height of his career as a jeweller. The bottle is smooth on the outside, the motif is « enclosed » inside. The mermaids that seem to be swimming in the greenish waters of a lake are a reminder that the artist’s imagination was peopled with fantastic creatures.
