1929 René Lalique opalescent Vitesse Nude glass Car Hood Ornament



French Name : Vitesse

Vitesse. Forward leaning nude mascot in deep blue/white opalescent glass by René Lalique. Moulded R.Lalique and France signature in relief immediately above the base. This is the very finest example available for sale in the world. The blue/white/amber opalescence is especially deep, the detail is superb, and this mascot is an exceptionally rare survivor indeed, with only a few examples now remaining. It is one of the rarest and the most beautiful of all the Lalique range of 29 mascots to locate today. The mascot was designed by the 'master of glass' Rene Lalique in perfect symmetry, showing the grace and beauty of the beautiful nude girl to her full advantage from every angle. The most perfect and extravagant car adornment ever designed for the front of a speeding car. This offering is ideally suited to the advanced R. Lalique glass enthusiast or car mascot perfectionist collector, and there will be only one lucky winning owner. Very best of luck with your bidding in this once in a lifetime opportunity.

First Introduced : 17th September 1929    Catalogue No. : 1160    Dimensions : 185mm high, 65mm base diameter.

Condition : Superb moulding definition including nice and clear moulded R. Lalique and France signatures. No damage or grinding anywhere. Normally this mascot suffers from chipped toes and base, no problems whatsoever on my example. Normal fine scratches under the base from honest use. As every piece was individually made, each piece has its own moulding characteristics with the normal 1929 R.Lalique production techniques. There is a really outstanding lovely deep blue colour and inner amber opalescence to the white opalescence showing clearly under bright light.
