Unique Lalique Mascots 2 #2# The automotive radiator hood & desk ornaments of R. Lalique

by Geoffrey G. Weiner

Twentieth-century French glass designer René Lalique was known for his art deco creations of glass art, perfume bottles, vases, jewellery, chandeliers, clocks, and the unusual subject of this book car radiator cap ornaments.

Stunningly beautiful and now highly collectible, these glass mascots range in design from a peacock's head to the goddess of speed, from a boar to an owl, from a fox to the King's greyhound, some in clear, strikingly coloured glass, others frosted, some electrically illuminated and all with their Lalique provenance etched somewhere into the glass.

This book is the follow-up edition of the title "Unique Lalique Mascots". Volume 2 has been updated with the latest auction results and the added description including Desk Ornaments. This is now the definitive work on the subject which includes, as yet, unpublished photos of the factory colour test pieces and the unique one-off King's Greyhound.

This reference work should prove to be invaluable to students, collectors, dealers, museums, libraries and auction houses who have an interest in Lalique glass of the art deco period.
