Lalique Naiade Opal Car Mascot
Fine example of the model no. 832 Naiade mascot in opalescent glass
Designed in 1920 as a statuette and often considered as a car mascot, having an identical round base diameter to many other models, offered here is a fine early example in opalescent glass.
No chips, grinding or restoration. Some mold lines and air bubbles apparent as part of the production technique of the time.
Molded ‘R.Lalique’ mark atop the tail fin.
Exquisite blue/yellow colour to glass, not too strong opalesence allowing the detail to be seen in the model. A mascot collection should perhaps carry examples of both clear and opalescent finishes for the Naiade which do showcase the piece differently.
Height 13cm
