Lalique Glass Inkwell (Encrier) Cover: The Rene Lalique Cernay Inkwell At Auction: Sans Ink, Sans Well!

Rene Lalique Glass Inkwell Cover For Cernay InkwellRene Lalique Glass Cover to the R Lalique inkwell Cernay (Catalogue Raisonne Number 437) has appeared at auction advertised as a Small Lalique Glass Bowl! Hmmmmmm. A better caption to this photo would be: “How Do You Make The Bottom Of An Inkwell Disappear?” Now that’s a question the Oracle himself might ask! Inquiring minds might ask: How does the seller even know it’s Lalique glass?

The starting price is $0.99 (that’s ninety nine cents) and no reserve! Maybe the seller really is mrmeshugener! Seriously, this is the seller’s Ebay ID, we can’t make this stuff up!

Rene Lalique Glass Inkwell Cernay Without CoverHere is a ink to a cached version of the the Ebay Item: 320378153310***.

Several of the Rene Lalique Inkwells have plain covers that weren’t decorated. But the Cernay is one model where Lalique used the cover as an integral part of the design of the piece. So unlike some other R Lalique inkwell covers, this cover is not interchangeable with any other model inkwell.

Good luck, and if you get it all done, we’ll see you there, hopefully later rather than sooner.
