LC Tiffany, Queen Anne’s Lace, Lalique and the Fish

LC Tiffany designed 3 Queen Anne’s Lace hair ornaments, one of which is in the Metropolitan Museum. It is made of silver, copper, opals, demantoid garnets, garnets, and enamel and is 3 1/2 inches in diameter. Like Lalique, Tiffany favored the common forms of nature, and did 3 of these ornaments to show the flower at different stages of bloom.

Another common form of nature is the fish pond with goldfish in it. I happen to have one, and goldfish are feisty creatures with a lot of personality. Here is Lalique drawing one, which is giving its opinion of being trapped in a comb. “I don’t want anything to do with this!” the goldfish says, as the butterfly flies away.
