PP said: Lalique was a master jeweler and created very life like pieces. This tiara was cut from horn and is rather impressive. Not sure I would wear it myself - somehow the orchid seems a bit flesh-eating (which was actually the aim. "La fleur du mal" was a common theme in especially French art nouveau)
