HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – In a sale drawn on the collection of the late Marie-Claude Lalique (1935-2003), the granddaughter of the famed French jewelry designer and glass artisan came out on top. The 271-lot auction, held at Lion and Unicorn on September 10, featured pieces by René Lalique, Marc Lalique (René’s son and Marie-Claude’s father), and Marie-Claude Lalique, who was the last member of the family to run the firm.

The overall top lot was a unique piece handmade and signed by Marie-Claude. The three-panel 80in-tall screen with a mixed media image of glass flowers on a wooden frame with brass hardware achieved $24,000 ($30,000 with buyer’s premium)

The René Lalique lot that commanded the highest sum was not a surprise. A molded plaque of a woman’s face in frosted and clear glass, believed to have been made to grace an interior of the Cote d’Azur Pullman Express luxury train, realized $8,250 ($10,312 with buyer’s premium).

And the highest price for a Marc Lalique piece went to a pair of fogged crystal wall sconces with oak leaf-form tops that can be detached from their crystal and metal bases. The pair earned $5,000 ($6,250 with buyer’s premium).

Many other lots from the Marie-Claude Lalique collection did well, and some were welcome surprises. It’s possible that the same bidder secured a set of four Lalique owl-motif lowball glasses and also a group of three other Lalique owl-motif lowball glasses. Each lot was estimated at $200-$800 and they respectively sold for $2,200 ($2,750 with buyer’s premium) and $1,300 ($1,625 with buyer’s premium).

Also posting head-turning results were a Lalique crystal figure of a Sumatra elephant that earned $2,000 ($2,500 with buyer’s premium) and a Lalique amber crystal lion figure dating to circa 2018 that brought $1,700 ($2,135 with buyer’s premium).

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Marie-Claude Lalique (1935-2003) was the daughter of Marc Lalique and the granddaughter of René Lalique. She was the last member of her family to run the company before she sold it in 1994, so, unsurprisingly, her personal collection is full of great Lalique pieces – some of which she made. On Sunday, September 10, Lion and Unicorn will sell 272 lots from her collection, which is rich in jewelry, decorative arts and furniture by all three generations of Laliques. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

Certain to be of interest is an original René Lalique decorative molded glass plaque of a woman’s face, believed to have been created for the interiors of the Cote D’Azur Pullman Express luxury train. Lalique was commissioned to fashion interior design elements, decorative pieces, lighting and glassware for the train, which debuted at precisely the wrong time, in late 1929, but managed to limp along during the Great Depression until mid-1932. It is estimated at $5,000-$8,000.

Also demanding mention are a quintet of cast metal works by René Lalique, all dating to circa 1900 and four of which have never been offered at auction. Perhaps the most intriguing of the bunch is a 12in relief of a standing male nude who cradles a female nude in his arms. The metalwork also has five protruding pieces of the sort designed to attach it to a second mold. That particular piece, which appears as lot 45, has an estimate of $6,000-$10,000.

Marie-Claude’s own talents are ably represented across the September 10 lineup, led by a circa-1994 artist’s test vase in frosted crystal. Decorated with Greco-Roman figures and standing 11.5in tall, it is estimated at $10,000-$20,000.
