Rene Lalique Levrier 1 Car Mascot: A clear glass greyhound figure highlighted by patina on original mount totaling 5 inches high and just under 7 inches long R. Lalique Car Mascot. Lot 9 Est: £300,000 - £500,000. Model: Car-Mascot-1 Circa 1929. Note: This is a non-commercial model originally designed (according to the Catalogue Raisonne) for presentation to the Prince of Wales (King Edward VIII, son of King George V, was Prince of Wales from 1910 until 1936). Somewhat opposite it is noted in the Christie's Catalogue for this sale that the 1931 Yearbook of The Studio states that this model was designed for a younger brother of the Prince of Wales, Prince George (Albert), who later became King George VI and father to the current Queen Elizabeth II. Finally, the auction house reported the day of the sale that it was a third brother that was Prince George (not Albert) who was later the Duke of Kent that was the person for whom this mascot model was created. While not unique, it is rare. Also in this sale are approximately 100 R. Lalique items virtually covering the gamut from vases to lighting and perfume bottles to tableware.
