Glass Mascots

R. Lalique:  Vitesse.

Forward leaning nude mascot in strong blue/white opalescent glass by René Lalique - 'Vitesse'.  Introduced 17 September 1929. Catalogue number 1160.  Moulded R. Lalique and France signature immediately above base.  Very clear signatures, with earliest double tailed 'Q' on Lalique.  This is probably the most beautiful mascot ever designed by René Lalique, and certainly one of the rarest.  It has especially exceptional detail, and definition.  The blue opalescence is especially deep.  A Work Of Art from the true master of his craft.
