Art glass enthusiasts have always loved R. Lalique glass.
Lalique is a French company founded by Rene Lalique in the late 19th century. The Lalique company is well known for designing beautiful jewelry and art glass pieces.
The early Lalique items were marked “R Lalique”. However, after Rene passed away in 1945 the pieces were simply marked “Lalique”. The glass comes in many colors. The pieces marked R. Lalique are often seen in an opalescent color. The pieces marked Lalique are usually a clear frosted color. Lalique glass comes in many forms including vases, perfume bottles, plates, cups, clocks, bookends, figures, paperweights, seals and much more.
Lalique is still very collectible in todays market. The value of Lalique depends on a few factors. The antique R. Lalique (Rene Lalique) pieces are harder to find and sell for much more money than the modern Lalique items. Condition also plays a big role in value. Often times the glass gets chipped or scratched. Scratches are very common, especially under the base. This may happen from normal every day use. Many people will still buy damaged pieces, but for a much lower price. Another important factor in determining value is size. when it comes to the more modern Lalique pieces, the larger, more impressive the better. However, some smaller antique R Lalique pieces are extremely rare. An R Lalique car mascot or seal that fits in the palm of your hand can bring thousands of dollars.
