Sothebys RLalique Brooch Makes $20,000

Rene Lalique BroochThe small, totally cool gold, enamel, and pearl Rene Lalique brooch which has graced our home page for the past few weeks, sold yesterday as Lot No. 357 at Sothebys New York in their Important Jewels Sale for $16,000 plus a 25% buyer’s premium of $4000 for a total price of $20,000. The brooch features two sea nymphs on either side of a grotesque masque, pale green enamel and a pearl drop. An OK result for a great little item.

    I agree but I think it was thought this piece was originally part of a larger peice and/or had buts missing. Still a cool thing though and very clever design.

    This price does not seen like very much money for something that is essentially a work of art that can be worn. I collect vases and do not own any jewelry. But this small object is very interesting and for a one-of-a-kind brooch that was made by Rene Lalique, the price that it sold for is quite reasonable.
