Probably the most famous pieces by Lucien Gaillard are his horn made hair pins featuring two intricate dragonflies exquisitely enamelled. Less famous than his Art Nouveau contemporaries Lalique, Fouquet or Vever his best pieces reach the same level of creativity and master craftsmanship. Lucien was the third generation of a Paris family of jewellers that had become known for their japanese inspired metalwork and Lucien's creations transpire the same influence.
