London Masterpiece III: LALIQUE at Epoque Fine Jewels

Brussels based Antique dealer Epoque Fine Jewels is presenting an incredible range not only for the quality of the pieces but also for their beauty, one of the most tasteful collections at the fair.

Above, this magnificent Art Nouveau pendant/brooch by Rene Lalique was made c. 1900 and features a beautiful Hawthorn blossom set in enamelled gold with frosted glass and diamonds.

Below, another piece by Lalique, also Art Nouveau, it is a collar plaque made of gold, enamel and diamonds with four striking blue thistle flowers.

Besides Lalique, they have brought a huge selection of all the masters including this extremely rare "collier de chien" by Cartier made in velvet and platinum set with diamonds and turquoises which is one of the finest examples of the Garland Style.
