French glassware brand Lalique has paid tribute to the Chinese Year of the Sheep with the creation of several crystal pieces featuring a ram.
The most impressive is a clear crystal sculpture of a ram, hand decorated with a delicate design in 21-carat gold that represents the famous ancient Greek legend of the Golden Fleece. Like all the items in the collection, it is made to the high standards for which Lalique has become known.
Two smaller versions of the ram figurine are also available, in clear crystal or with a gold lustre finish. Any one of these new additions to the brand’s Astrologie collection would make a lavish and auspicious festive gift for Chinese New Year 2015.
