Georges Lemaire (born February 19 1853) operated in Paris, France from around 1870 to around 1910 or so before passing away in 1914. Lemaire became known in Paris for his inlay work as well as carving and sculpting work in gemstones. Aside from his carving, sculpting, and engraving work in gemstones he also crafted jewelry using some of the stones that were not sold off to other jewelers for manufacture. The pieces he created were at the height of the Art Nouveau period and are typical in design with playful natural elements such as lilies, swans, and busts of ladies incorporated in the design itself. Georges passed away in 1914.
