fine group of Gallé and Daum assembled over 25 years by a New York collector who is planning to retire and relocate. This latter group includes more than 20 pieces of cameo glass, notably a monumental vase by Daum and several of the popular ‘tall-neck’ solifleur vases by Gallé together with an unusual artistic early Galle’ vase in bright green glass.
The art of Rene’ Lalique is represented in more than two hundred lots to be offered in the second session beginning at 6 p.m., much of it at little or no reserve, in what promises to be the finest Lalique auction held in New York since the 1990s.
“The auction includes something for virtually every taste and budget,” said Dawes, “with estimates ranging from $200 to more than $40,000.”
Further highlights include a large selection of vases in colored and opalescent glass from the inter-war years, notably a superb example of the deep amber ‘Serpent’ vase, a rare deep blue ‘Thibet’ vase from the Alter estate with applied handles, and a deep amber ‘Gros Scarabees’ vase found recently on Long Island. Other notable lots include a rare pair of ‘Danseuses’ table lamps from 1931, a ‘Raquel Mellor’ perfume bottle, a deep opalescent ‘Suzanne’ statuette found in the New Jersey estate, 15 automobile mascots, including a superb ‘Victoire’ and several amethyst-tinted rarities such as ‘Grenouille,’ ‘Pintade’ and ‘Grande Libellule,’
