Lalique Tete d'Epervier Car Mascot Topaz
Fine example of the model no. 1139 Tete d'Epervier or hawk's head mascot in rarely seen topaz or fume coloured glass
Designed in 1928 and full of symbolism so often seen with René Lalique radiator caps. Offered here is an example in rare topaz or fume (smoke) glass.
The smokey colouring gives a nice depth to this piece constrasting the simple lines of the clear glass version and strength of the opalescent model. The Tete d’Epervier is unusual in being offered by Lalique in 3 distinct versions.
No grinding or restoration, a very small chip to the bottom edge of the base. Some mold lines and air bubbles are apparent as part of the production technique of the time.
Molded ‘Lalique France’ above the base, as is correct for this piece.
Height 6.1cm
