Lalique Only

08. November 2022 at 3:00 PM MEZ CET


The Art Nouveau/Art Deco auctions ended very satisfactorily on Wednesday.

Right at the beginning, the two main lots of the Lalique glass collection, again presented in a separate catalogue, prevailed. One of two consoles in carved snow-white marble that René Lalique had made for the Exposition des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels in Paris in 1925, easily confirmed its estimate at EUR 30,000 (lot 19). The two electrified candelabra 'Trois Branches Raisins' - the same model that was also used in the Pavillon Lalique - were also hotly contested and were bid up from EUR 15,000 to 26,000 on two telephones and by numerous participants via the internet platforms (lot 18). Both lots will go into a French collection.
