    Yes great results at Quail Lodge sale. Prices vary a lot compared with here in the UK, (I don’t think so).
    As for instance the Hirondelle at $6,728 (about £3,000 in Sterling). I purchased one on behalf of a client here in the UK at a provincial auction (May 2008) with only one or two Lalique collectors that I was aware of in the room, with one phone bidder I was up against at near the end of the bidding ‘war’. The final bid was £3,581.50 (post-hammer price-the final price I paid). This piece had the relatively rare Breves Gallery base with it as well!
    So, my point is that the rest of the Quail Lodge pieces are would what I would expect to pay here myself. Funny as it may seem is that in France in the Retromobile Paris sale, some pieces failed to reach their reserves!

    Happy collecting
