Pierre d'Avesn was born in 1901 and worked at Rene lalique from the age of 14. During his time at Lalique he designed such pieces as the serpent vase and the Tourbillons vase. He is now regarded as one of the most important designers in France. In 1926 Pierre left Lalique in 1926 to make his own pieces which were made by Cristallerie de Saint-Rémy. He worked on designs for other manufactories until 1939 when he began working on his own designs and these designs were produced by Cristallerie de Choisy-le-Roi (Sèvres).
