Lalique is more than just a name, it is a highly talented family, comprising three generations of artists of international fame.The second generation of the Lalique family is represented by Marc (1900-1977), who succeeded his father in 1945 and founded a new era, that of crystal. Marc was a remarkable technician, inspired by the love of his art. who during the 1950's was also the creator of many works which preserve the lalique style, and which also reflect the spirit of their age. Then Marie-Claude Lalique, third generation of artists, after Marc's death in 1977, became the artist of the company until 1996.
