Lalique Epsom Car Mascot
Model no. 1153 Epsom car mascot
The Epsom was released at the same time as 1152A Longchamp and is a more naturalistic representation of a racehorse. Rarer still than the Longchamp A, suffering similarly with requiring a mounting groove to be cut into the base for use as a mascot especially if using a Breves mount. Unlike the Longchamp, the Epsom will not stand up on its own and needs some kind of mount for upright display, thus more Epsoms historically will have suffered damage from mounting. Rarely they can be found with the genuine and expensive when new Lalique factory mount which was devised to avoid the cutting of a groove.
Offered here is an Epsom in absolutely pristine condition with excellent colour and mold quality. Unmarked and with no air bubbles it would be hard to imagine a better example. Pictured here in a safe removable mount, available at additional cost. There is no damage at all. A very rare find.
Length 18.2cm
