Lalique

Well, I saw this one in 'Vegas:
 
 
But how about this?
 
 
"1994 Rolls-Royce Lalique mascot.
A Lalique Rolls-Royce Spirit of Ecstasy glass mascot. This numbered mascot is one of only 200 commissioned from Lalique by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Limited in 1994, commemorating their 90th Anniversary. Complete with original certificate and signed by Lalique underneath the base. This ornament measures 7.5" / 19 cm tall and is in perfect/flawless condition. The entire series of these sold out in 1995 making these quite rare, especially in this condition."
 
 
Thanks for showing it to me Morry.

We have three RR mascots by Lalique, one still in its original grey box and slip cover with Rapidias certificate and Lalique waranty with it.Did you know Bentley have commissioned Chrystal Lalique to produce a flying 'B'mascot?

This is an email sent out to the major auction houses, of which I would like to make your good readers aware of this forthcoming auction probably on September 6th or 7th of the Goodwood Revival week at Gorringes Auction House in nearby Lewes, Sussex..

I have been collecting Lalique glass since the turn of the century and now wish to dispose or downsize the collection consisting of over 100 pieces of unique Lalique automotive mascots, desk ornaments, trophies and paperweights along with some pairs of bookends. Mainly from the inter-war Art Deco period. I would offer them to you to auction and am looking for an auction house that would dedicate the catalogue exclusively to them.

This would be one of the largest collections of *Unique Lalique Mascots offered for sale anywhere in the world! I would also sell a portrait of René Lalique in oil on canvas a painting of him working at his desk (see the full provenance of this below).

If you would be so kind as to inform me of your commission and percentage for selling them and also any other costs as photographs, insurance etc. that maybe would be incurred, I will then select the appropriate auction house and location to auction them. I look forward in anticipation to your early reply.



Yours sincerely,

G.G. Weiner
