René Lalique “Deux Faisans” Glass Brooch
The design for this subtle René Lalique brooch, aptly named "Deux Faisans" or "Two Pheasants," is composed of glass and silver dates from as early as 1911, after Lalique’s takeover of a glass factory near Paris in 1908-1909. The translucent white pressed and molded glass depicting the pair of pheasants is set against a reflective silver ground, creating an ethereal glow to illuminate the sensitive composition.
