R Lalique Guarantee: A Good Rene Lalique Laugh! That Lalique Dog Won’t Hunt!

Rene Lalique Fake Glass DogLalique Glass Dog: “Garanteed” 75 Years Old AND “correctly” signed R Lalique! Correctly! We love it. It’s really important when you sign these things, that you do it “correctly”!!! Is this the greatest or what? Fraud and Funny – they’re both F words aren’t they?

“A Great Rene Lalique Crystal Scotty Dog”! “Garanteed (that’s right, it’s GARANTEED) 75 Years Old”! Does anyone know if a GARANTEE is the same thing as a guarantee? Seriously, why stop at 75 years? Why not go for 175 as long as you’re rolling in it? Here is a link to a saved/cached image version of the original Rene Lalique Fake At Auction listing online. You may have to use the zoom function of your browser (or whatever program opens images for you) to get the cached image to expand in the window if it does not appear full size. After clicking on the link to the item, a new window will open with the cached image in it. On a Mac, just press the apple key and click on the cached image in your browser window. On a PC, hold down the alt key while clicking on the cached image.

Grandpa (who wasn’t even from the South, but still had a bucket full of quaint expressions) used to say that you could write the word DOG on the side of a CAT but that wouldn’t make it bark! Well, what if you write R.Lalique on the side of a dog? Maybe the dog can do one of those O.J. “plaintive wail” sounds instead of a bark. Totally hilarious.

Another great thing about this crazy auction are the photos! They WATERMARKED the photos! Hmmmmmm ….. Don’t want anyone copying those great art photos and not giving credit where credit is due!

Then there’s this: “HE IS IN GREAT CONDITION FREE OF CHIPS OR CRACKS!” Well isn’t that a relief? Thankfully we won’t have to write the seller to ask about the condition, he’s got it right in the ad. Now we can bid with confidence!

This seller has all the bases covered boy. Protect the photos, issue the garantee, layout the condition right up front (is that garanteed too?), trumpet the age of the piece; all of this obviously after extensive research. Not missing a trick here, no way.

Of course, you’ll find this same dog pictured in our Rene Lalique Fakes Section, where it has been in residence not for 75 years, but for nearly 1 year!

We have only one more thing to say about this “Rene Lalique Scotty Dog”! Beam us up Scotty! Beam us up!

And for your info:

That Dog Won’t Hunt – at metaphordogs.org

And from Merriam-Websters.com Dictionary:
Plaintive – expressive of suffering or woe
Wail – to make a sound suggestive of a mournful cry

So “plaintive wail” is kind of an audible double dose of bad news….. That shoe fits pretty well.
