TEN YEARS+ in the making! Very well researched, all the required facts, figures, what to look for and what to avoid. Most of the auction houses, collector's & dealers in Lalique were consulted to compile this 'definative' high quality work on the subject.
-
FEATURES: All the thirty known mascots including the paperweights (presse-papiers), the desk ornaments and trophies. The full colour and colour tinted variations, the one-off's and opalescent pieces. The sizes, dimensions, types of signatures and variations encountered. The official & un-official various mounting bases including the Breves Galleries radiator and desk lighting bases (with superbly detailed images), interesting claims by Breves at the time re-printed in the book. The fakes you may encounter, the related books to consult, the places to visit to see them etc. Plus of course the prices realised at auctions all over the world and not taken at random from various collector's & dealers as most 'price-guides' do!
The true mystique of Lalique, but now all the above is discussed in depth! This is not just a beautiful coffee table tome but a proper reference work that will be consulted time & time again! So this should prove be the last word, the definitive 'bible' on the subject.
