Rene Lalique glass art has always been highly regarded and in the 1970’s and early 80’s it further separated itself from all other glass makers. A variety of auctions featuring Lalique started to appear. In fact, Phillips started the trend by devoting their entire auction to Rene Lalique works. Today, the trend continues with exclusive Rene Lalique auctions conducted by Christies New York, the
Paris Drouot Auction House, Bonhams in London, the New Jersey Rago Arts and Auction Center and Christies SK London.
Whenever you are buying Lalique pieces at any auction, it’s important to consider their condition. This can have a dramatic reflection on its value. Also, it’s important to understand that a buyer’s standard commission is in the 20-25% range.
Presently the highest price paid at any Rene Lalique auction was for an elegant “Lalique Fountain”. In November of 1991, David Weinstein bid and successfully purchased this fantastic piece for $1,100,000!
Current prices remain strong for all Rene Lalique glass works as well as jewelry. Every year, many Rene Lalique auctions are conducted worldwide which DJL Lalique participates in buying numerous pieces.
