Rene Lalique Auction in New York: Major R Lalique Auction Is On: R Lalique Sale In December!

Rene Lalique Auctions: Lalique Auction Sale comes to New York in Mid December!

Heritage BuildingRLalique.com has learned that Heritage Auction Galleries of Dallas Texas, the third largest auction house in the world by sales volume, will hold an auction in New York City on or about December 16th, 2009 devoted to the works of the great Rene Lalique! This will likely be the largest of any of the Lalique Auctions held anywhere in the world in 2009. We rate this an exciting development and one which should focus a good deal of attention on the entire R Lalique collecting field. It also represents another great vote of confidence by one of the world’s top auction houses in the depth and stability of the market for R Lalique and the potential for success in the R Lalique Auction field.

Heritage Auction Galleries, headquartered in the building shown above, has been rapidly expanding in recent years, and it’s rumored that they plan to open offices in New York and Los Angeles in the near future. The move into R Lalique Auctions makes even more sense in view of theirĀ recent announcement of the hiring of the well known Nicholas Dawes as a Consignment Director. Rumor has it that Mr. Dawes used all of his considerable skills as an author to write the bio portion of the announcement himself! Heritage has something like 450,000 registered bidders worldwide, and reported sales in the last 12 months of over 700 Million Dollars. They bring a lot of expertise to this new Lalique Auction endeavor, including now the expertise of Nick Dawes.

Nick DawesMr. Dawes is the author of the excellent 1986 standard reference work Lalique Glass, which has been out of print for quite some time (20 years?), but which is available here in the Rene Lalique Library at RLalique.com, along with nearly 1000 other R Lalique books and reference items. The only real question we have about this great news is this: Does the accompanying Heritage PR photo look like the same Nick Dawes pictured in his book?
