Rene Lalique Boxes: R Lalique Box Auctions Online

Rene Lalique Box models in great original condition are hard find at auction. Three great Lalique Glass Box auctions online have appeared at opposite ends of the “original condition” spectrum.

Lalique Box PerlesA clean fresh to market Rene Lalique Box Perles from the Perles Garniture De Toilette Set is at auction on Ebay thru January 24th. The seller states, “Excellent overall condition with no chips, cracks or dings”. The Catalogue Raisonne model number is 603 and it’s circa 1926. The Dallas Texas seller has a reasonable shipping cost in the U.S. of less than $10, and will ship worldwide. The UK rate is $31.50.

This great Lalique box started out at $9.99 with no reserve, and has worked it’s way up to around $200 as of this writing. Still not all the money by our thinking.

Here is a link to a saved/cached image version of the original 200421594614 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 click on the image and see if that expands it. If not, 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.

Lalique Box FontainebleauThe other box item online of interest is just the top to the Rene Lalique Box Fontainebleau, model number 59 and circa 1924. The top by looks and description appears to be in good order. With a starting price of $9.99, it currently is around $45.00 and the auction also goes until January 24th. Typically, it’s the top that gets broken when it slips out of your hand after being removed from the bottom, and we know there are collectors out there with topless bottoms, if you know what we mean. The bottom for the Fontainebleau is a standard bottom that can go with many of the R Lalique boxes and this seems to represent a good opportunity to pair up an orphan bottom.

In addition the molded signature on the side of the cover, the inscription #59 is engraved in tiny numerals on the bottom of the rim of the cover. The Ebay Item Number (cached version) is 330396557189.

Lalique Box CoquillesThere is also a clean looking Coquilles Box Model No. 71 circa 1920 coming up at Harlowe-Powell Auction House in Charlottesville, Virginia on January 23rd. You can bid online for this box at their website. A link and auction details are listed in the Lalique Auctions Worldwide Section where you will find information on all three of these Lalique boxes.
