  • Winter Games Albertville 1992 Medal

    Winter Games Albertville 1992 Medal

    On the obverse, the five Olympic rings can be seen in the foreground, with a valley in the background, in gradation, thus giving the impression of perspective. On the upper part of the metal is an intagliated stylised laurel branch featuring the words: “ALBERTVILLE 92 XVIes JEUX OLYMPIQUES D’HIVER – XVI OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES”. On the reverse of the medal, decorative motif is intagliated in the colourless glass. The lines symbolise the mountains. Created for the first time in glass, set with gold, silver and bronze, the medals were entirely hand-made. Detailed and precise work required several different stages of production. The production of a medal required the contribution of 35 people, and took several hundred hours for Lalique to create the medals.
