The interest in Lalique glass continues. A good half of the small but fine collection of 78 works from the factory of the glass manufacturer René Lalique, presented in a special catalogue, was sold at highly satisfactory prices. The second number of the catalogue, the brooch 'Meduse' designed by René Lalique in 1912, rose from an inexpensive EUR 200 to EUR 800 already. The price for the 'Pavots d'Argent' flacon, made in 1926 for the perfumer Roger & Gallet, increased from EUR 500 to EUR 800 (lot 36). Two vases that are very seldom available on the market were in the centre of attention: The 'Soudan' vase from 1928 with jumping antelopes starting at EUR 1,800 was only sold at EUR 3,900 after a fervent bidding battle (lot 42), while the 'Borromée' vase with peacock heads from 1928 made an even bigger leap and climbed from EUR 1,200 to EUR 4,000.
