Lalique and Tiffany glass at Heritage

Lalique and Tiffany glass at Heritage

Heritage Auctions will offer a private collection of Tiffany lamps, a discovered hoard of Tiffany glass, and the largest Rene Lalique collection ever offered by the auction house at their Art Glass auction Nov 16-17.

An evening session will be devoted to pieces from Tiffany Studios, followed by Lalique works from eminent collections.

A large amount of Tiffany glass, discovered bricked up in a secret Connecticut trove, will be offered alongside 10 Tiffany leaded glass lamps, and a strong selection of Lalique hood ornaments.

Highlights include a pair of Lalique’s Suzanne and Thais art glass statuettes, circa 1925, valued at $40,000. Among the car mascots, an amethyst-tinted Victoire ‘Spirit of the Wind’ radiator ornament is expected to fetch upwards of $20,000, and a dragonfly mascot ‘Petite Libelulle’ is valued at $8,000.

A fine selection of Lalique’s fish motif glass is expected to do well, a red glass Poissons vase, 1921, valued at $20,000, and a frosted glass Yeso plaque with illuminating base, circa 1930, at $5,000.

The Tiffany Studios table lamps are headlined by two dragonfly leaded shades, a 1910 Red-Eye Dragonfly shade and a green, yellow, blue and brown Dragonfly shade. These are valued at $40,000 each, this price met by a Poppy table lamp, circa 1901. A Geometric table lamp with Favrile ball is expected to sell for $30,000.

The Meyer and Lillian Schwartz collection provides much of the Tiffany glass. A circa 1896 Tiffany Studios Favrile vase, a peacock-patterned goose neck vase similar to the one presented to President Benjamin Harrison by L. C. Tiffany, is valued at $20,000.
