René Lalique’s most beautiful jewelry pieces are shared by three museums in the world. In Paris, the Jewelry Gallery of the Decorative Arts Museum has a delightful collection which includes the pendant representing a cockfight and the “Le Baiser” brooch. In Lisbon, the Gulbenkian Foundation has some of the most extraordinary pieces like the dragonfly brooch hybridized with a woman’s bust. The Lalique Museum of Hakone belongs to a Japanese collector who exhibits his favorite pieces, including a necklace formed by stylized enamel swallows.
