The single owner collection Lalique

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 9 aprile 2014

montargisLondon – Christie’s London is pleased to announce the single owner collection Lalique: An Important Private Collection, which will take place at Christie’s King Street on 30 April. The calibre of this private collection bears testimony to the discerning eye of the collector, and is a fitting tribute to the extraordinary vision and creativity of the master glass-maker René Lalique, who continues to enthrall an international audience nearly seven decades after his death. Distinguished from previous collections which have appeared on the market in the last decades, this collection primarily focuses on large-scale vases in rare designs and a wide spectrum of colours. In addition to the jewel-like coloured works, there are a number of exquisite hand-crafted cire perdue vases and a selection of significant display items, such as  Oiseau De Feu, which features a mythical firebird and is illuminated from below (estimate: £25,000-35,000). With estimates ranging from £2,500 to £150,000, the 84 lots are expected to realise in the region of £2 million.Christie’s has been selling Lalique since 1971 and has offered more Lalique at auction than any other auction house internationally. In 2013, Christie’s Lalique sale in London realised over £1.3 million, the highest total ever achieved (perruches, montagis)
