A collection of over 120 pre-WW2 examples of Lalique glass will be offered at Bonhams 17 April sale, Les Objets Precieux de Lalique. Many of the objects for the Knightsbridge sale come from a single consignor - who collected over a thirty year period. The sale will focus on the smaller and more delicate works that Lalique excelled at producing.
An array of perfume bottles and powder bowls will be offered, alongside cachets, necklaces, pendants, dressing table pieces, bowls, plates and drinking glasses. Many of the pieces reflect Lalique’s appreciation of the female form and are beautifully executed in both the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles.
Animal subjects and images from nature are also common to many of the pieces, and demonstrate the particular delicacy of touch and attention to detail that typifies Lalique’s designs.
