Rising From The Ashes and Creative Assemblies

Two kinds of "R. Lalique" items are shown here. The first is where a piece is broken and something entirely new is created from the ashes. The 2nd is where something that didn't exist before is created either with a combination of existing pieces, or by altering or adding to an existing piece.

Both are great ways to save some history and/or to be able to continue to get good use out of part or all of a valued object or objects. But from a buyer's standpoint, you have to be aware that a possible convincing piece (obviously undocumented) such as the first two items below, will likely never have the kind of value that an original piece has. And the market for undocumented and put-together pieces is a lot narrower than for original as-made items. You may want to buy something like this, but the point is to know what you are getting is not an original R. Lalique piece or design so that you approach it with your eyes open and with a very tight grip on your wallet.

Your ideas, comments, added photos of objects that might be appropriate for this page, and suggestions for future examples are welcome and appreciated. Please email any and all observations to Info@RLalique.com. Please review the Photo Submissions Guidelines when emailing us any photos.

*The Full Monty is said to have many origins as an expression, the most famous referring to he size of the breakfast favored by Field Marshal Montgomery. But the one we think best (OK, the one we like best), originates with the British tailors Montague Burton. Montague Burton started with one shop in Chesterfield, Derbyshire just after the turn of the century, and grew to over 600 tailor shops and 14 factories. Started by Sir Montague Burton, a Lithuanian Jewish immigrant to England, the firm would rise to operate the largest clothing factory in the world, employing 10,000 people on its site on Hudson Road in Leeds where it made 30,000 suits a week. According to period accounts, lore, and recollection, Montague Burton had a basic two piece suit consisting of a jacket and trousers that they offered for sale. But for a little extra money, you could add a waistcoat and a 2nd pair of trousers. If you got all that, you got everything, which meant you got the "Full Monty".
