Post 1947 to date:
Car mascots (Bouchons de Radiateurs) now marketed as paperweights/desk ornaments (presse-papiers) listings using the Lalique factory reference numbers, those marked thus* are now discontinued and because of this now command a premium on the original retail price. The Lalique factory signed all their works 'R. Lalique' up until Rene Lalique's death in 1945, however some were still struck from the same moulds and so still had this pre-war signature not being discontinued until 1947. Post-war to modern pieces are usualy signed in script 'Lalique France' with a small circuled 'r' in between for 'registered'.
The (modern) Collection, all are in Lalique's famous grey logo box (Cristal Lalique, a'Paris) with lining and cut-out sponge support for the item. Each one has a certificate of authenticity. Note: Some discontinued* items may no longer have the original box. The 1950's & 60's items may no longer have the box, please ask. However we do dispatch all items bubble wrapped in a strong box. We automaticaly send registered mail or can send insured mail on request.
Photos: We have photographed each one listed and can of course e-mail these to you on request. If you prefer we can send any photos (at 50p each, refundable on purchase) in the post to you if you enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope to us.

Recent introduction of the Bugatti Royale mascot...
These Bugatti mascots representing the unique standing elephant metal mascot from the radiator top of the Bugatti Royale. This magnificent sculpture was created by the artisan Rembrandt Bugatti exclusively for this series of car of which only a handful were produced. 'Cristal Lalique' has recreated them in a very limited edition of only 55 in black, 88 in amber and 431 in a clear & frosted finish. Prices are £10,500, £6,950 and £4,250 respectively. They are mounted onto a special metal mount embossed with the initials 'EB'. Sold with a presentation case and with a full Lalique factory warranty.
Bookends pair, no catalogue number issued for 'Reverie' serre-livres verre (pair of glass bookends) by Christal Lalique. Extremly heavy cast pair of female (very nubile) nudes pushing against large blocks forming the bookends. This limited edition has one tiny chip to the base of one of them, you would have to hunt hard to find it! However they would retail in excess of £4,000 when new. One has a minor chip out of the bottom corner of its base. These are sold with the certificate of authenticity. £1,550
