Rene Lalique Longchamp-A Car Mascot information and photos at RLalique.com are tied together on this main Longchamp-A Car Mascots page. Past and future auctions, historical details, sales, copies, reproductions, articles and more are all accessible from here. This page grows as more info is added to the website.

Note: The Hippodrome de Longchamp is the name of the famous horse-racing facility in the Bois de Boulogne Park in western Paris. With Emperor Napoleon III in attendance, the track held its first race in 1857. And here is the early 1870's Degas painting Racehorses At Longchamp that has been in the collection of the MFA in Boston since 1903.

Also Note: This is 1 of 19 car mascots that was also marketed by Rene Lalique et Cie as a paperweight. And see the Bookends category for examples of this mascot sold mounted in a metal ring and set in a black base as a bookend.

Also Note: This is 1 of 3 horse head car mascots marketed by Rene Lalique et Cie. All 3 were created in the summer of 1929 just before the crash. In addition to this model there is also another version of Longchamp and the Epsom. And there is a 4th horse themed car mascot, the amazing Cinq Chevaux.

Also Note: This is the earlier and rarer of the 2 Longchamps. Compared to the later version, this has more compact hair in 2 rows, often called a "double mane". This version has a molded R. LALIQUE on the horse's right side at the bottom of the neck, just to the right of the front center. It also is molded FRANCE on the horse's left side bottom of the neck just to the left of the rear center. The July 2020 listing below has great photos of those signatures. Unlike the other Longchamp version, we are not aware of any copies of this version and it has not been reproduced by the modern Lalique company (as of 2024).
