Lalique was commissioned to make work for this church, the moulds were destroyed after use.

Thanks for adding this Sue, likewise I've never heard of this before either.

That's some altarpiece! - The picture enlarges if you click into it.

There were quite a few links came up when I searched for it, but the wiki one seems to provide the most basic info, and folk can go to links from there, or do their own searches for images.  :) The christening font is glass too, and the front-y panelly bits before the altar bit. (don't know what that bit is called)
I did search the board for a previous mention, but nothing came up.
Cheers, Sue (M)
