I have been discovering and collecting the works of René Lalique for over 25 years. The academic side held a great interest for me and my collection curated over that period of time was somewhat eclectic and esoteric and culminated in a single owner sale of over 200 lots at Bonhams, London in February 2019.
The mascots or hood ornaments of Lalique were my first love though and that is the area I now focus on. Completing a collection of René Lalique car mascots, including all the catalogued variants, could in itself be a lifetime task. That now done, I have dedicated this website as a source of shared knowledge and also for the acquisition and sale of pieces. This site will relate to pre-1945 René Lalique design and manufactured items only. The majority of Lalique car mascots were designed in the mid to late 1920s which many regard as the golden age of motoring and Art Deco style.
