We would like to introduce you to Geoffrey George Weiner, Auctionata expert in Lalique Car Mascots and Automobilia.
Geoffrey George Weiner, I.A.M., O.T.R., C.S.M.A. is an expert in Automobilia specializing in fine Lalique car mascots. He has been in the automotive business for over 30 years and previously dealt in arms and militaria prior to that.
His passion developed early at the tender age of 13 working for Roy Butler of the famed BBC Antiques Roadshow. In the late 1970's, Geoffrey worked at his shop in Kingston-upon-Thames selling all sorts of militaria along with automobilia, mainly motoring badges and mascots. His interests are diverse and include old toy pedal cars: he had built a collection of more than fifty. One of these was a special order made as a birthday present for HRH Prince William from his mother the (late) Lady Diana, Princess of Wales (all since sold off long ago!). He now runs a collectors' club and Gallery in Brighton devoted to Lalique automotive mascots.
Mr. Weiner has advised many auction houses and worked as the automobilia consultant for a well-known UK auction house. He is also a consultant for the Miller's Collector's Cars price guide as well as their art, antiques and collectibles price guides. He has published several books on the subject of collecting, and is currently writing a second follow-up book on the subject of Lalique car mascots.
He has appeared on many television programs and radio shows speaking on his areas of expertise. Recently, Geoffrey appeared on the collectibles show 'Masterpiece' and BBC’s 'Dealers – Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is'.
Mr. Weiner deals at this moment exclusively in the artwork of René Lalique (French, 1860–1945) being the designer of Art Deco glass car mascots, desk ornaments & paperweights.
Geoffrey George Weiner lives and works in Brighton and London.
