Designed, modeled, and carved by René Lalique himself, L’Anémone des Bois is a work of genius, showcasing the artist’s early but already masterful explorations in plique-à-jour enamel and pressed glass jewelry. The first in an emotive series of jewels exploring courtship and celebrating the old-growth forests of his childhood in Marnes, the brooch was a critical triumph at the 1898 Salon. The premier French journal Art et Décoration praised the jewel’s exquisite leaves and petals as conveying nature’s "infinitely complicated and precious architecture." The work exemplifies the artistic sensitivity and technical acuity that established Lalique’s reputation as master of modern jewelry.
