One of the world’s best-known manufacturers of crystal – Lalique has joined forces with one of the most recognizable names in music – Elton John on a collection of crystal sculptures to raise funds for the entertainer’s AIDS foundation. The unique Angel Cire Perdue in clear and red crystal, together with three unique special editions of the standing Angel and Heart, are to be sold at auction in partnership with Paddle8, in February 2016. All proceeds will benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
“The ultimate goal of this project is to raise money to support urgently needed projects that address the continuing challenges of the AIDS epidemic across the globe. In doing so, we also want to create beautiful and meaningful pieces for people to purchase that speak to the high standards of the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Lalique. Through purchasing one of these crystal pieces, people are also learning something about EJAF’s work and helping to make a real difference in the lives of people in need.” – Sir Elton John
The standing Angel in clear crystal and the Heart in clear or red crystal are available at Lalique boutiques and their select retailers. Lalique will contribute 10% of sales to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
