Lalique Art Nouveau Necklace at Christies Geneva Makes $333,661 – R. Lalique Sales Prices Continue Strong

The great Lalique has made another strong auction showing, this time on November 17th at Christies in Geneva Switzerland.

On offer in “Jewels: The Geneva Sale”, was a single piece of Rene Lalique unique jewelry described as “An Art Nouveau Fringe Necklace by Rene Lalique”. This wonderful artistic creation was sold along with its “beige fabric Lalique case”. And the entire lot was highlighted in the Worldwide Lalique Auctions Section at RLalique.com for several weeks. Here is the original Lalique Necklace listing.

Rene Lalique Art Nouveau Necklace

The elegant Lalique collier is referenced in the seminal work by Sigrid Barten, “Rene Lalique Schmuck und Objects d’art 1890-1910“. Composed of pearls, brown glass, white enamel and gold, it is a striking showpiece measuring 40 centimeters and being circa approximately 1900.

Against a pre-sale estimate of $61,000 – $81,000, the necklace made over 5 times the low estimate and over 4 times the high, ending at a resounding CHF 327,000 or $333,661 including the buyer’s premium.

Described in the sale catalogue as “The Property of a Lady”, the winning bidder secured what can only be described, notwithstanding its lack of precious stones, as a real gem of a necklace and an outstanding piece of Lalique Art Nouveau artwork.
