My friend Jean-Christophe Nicolas told me about this Lalique door a while ago and I finally remembered to check it out. It turns out the building was built by architects Louis-Eugene and Albert Feine for Rene Lalique to live in with his family in 1902. Lalique designed the gorgeous door with etched pine cones and pine branches. I also love the detailing of the iron work on the balconies. The location is in the upscale 8th arr. facing the Seine, near the Ave. Montaigne and George V.
40 Cour d'Albert 1er, 8th. arr.
I am happy to announce a very special one-time tour opportunity. My friend and loyal blog fan Mary Gilbert and her close friend Phil Nuxhall both from Cincinnati, are coming to Paris the beginning of April. Phil is the Historian and Tour Coordinator for the Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati where Mary is a docent. They are both longtime cemetery enthusiasts.
We are co-leading a tour of the lovely Russian Cemetery in Sainte Genevieve Des Bois just outside of Paris where Rudolf Nureyev is buried in a mosaic-encrusted sarcophagus along with other famous Russian expats and after we will visit the striking modern Evry Cathedral, the only 20th century church in France, built in 1992, designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta.
