He also offers advice on buying and looking after these objets d’art that are a joy to own as well as a true blue-chip investment for you and your family to savour and enjoy!" -See 'My Other Items' here on eBay- Overview CV (courtesy of 'Auctionata' the German online auction house company).We would like to introduce you to Geoffrey George Weiner, Auctionata expert in Lalique Car Mascots and Automobilia.Geoffrey George Weiner, I.A.M., O.T.R., C.S.M.A. is an expert in Automobilia specializing in fine Lalique car mascots. He has been in the automotive business for over 30 years and previously dealt in arms and militaria prior to that.His passion developed early at the tender age of 13 working for Roy Butler of the famed BBC Antiques Roadshow. In the late 1970's, Geoffrey worked at his shop in Kingston-upon-Thames selling all sorts of militaria along with automobilia, mainly motoring badges and mascots. His interests are diverse and include old toy pedal cars: he had built a collection of more than fifty. One of these was a special order made as a birthday present for HRH Prince William from his mother the (late) Lady Diana, Princess of Wales (all since sold off long ago!). He now runs a collectors' club and Gallery in Brighton devoted to Lalique automotive mascots. . Mr. Weiner has advised many auction houses and worked as the automobilia consultant for a well-known UK auction house. He is also a consultant for the Miller's Collector's Cars price guide as well as their art, antiques and collectibles price guides. He has published several books on the subject of collecting, and is currently writing a second follow-up book on the subject of Lalique car mascots. He has appeared on many television programs and radio shows speaking on his areas of expertise. Recently, Geoffrey appeared on the collectibles show 'Masterpiece' and BBC’s 'Dealers – Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is'. Mr. Weiner deals at this moment exclusively in the artwork of René Lalique (French, 1860–1945) being the designer of Art Deco glass car mascots, desk ornaments & paperweights.Geoffrey George Weiner lives and works in Brighton & London.- The magic of glass: René Lalique ... René Lalique (French, 1860-1945) was a glass master craftsman working through the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. The drawings for these car mascots known as the Radiator Cap were produced during the short Art Deco period from 1925 to 1931. The production ended with the occupation of the Wingen-sur-Moder factory by Germans who took over the region of Alsace in 1940. The production began again in 1947 under the control of his son Marc, then they were marketed in the form of paperweight (bookends or desk ornaments). Recently reintroduced for a short time and promoted as "Mascots" from 1990 to 2015 and all have been removed from the range and their catalog. Many books have been written about him and his glass, etc. but so far none has the detailed information as defined in these books! The new Lalique Mascot Book is available. However, we have a handful of the 1st edition of this book for sale here. They seem to be a bonus here on eBay! However, the few copies we have left are very special because they are signed by the author and can be dedicated (at the choice of buyers) before sending. The first three photos show the book we sell here now (the 1st edition). The other photos show the 2nd edition (with sample content) that can be ordered and booked now (see below) ... Note: If you want the author of the books to be signed and dedicated, please let us know when you order.

Be the first to have this new Vol. 2 edition (at £ 35) before any price increase that will occur on eBay and Amazon again! The second (Vol 2) of the title: "Unique Lalique Mascots" subtitle: "The hood of the car radiator and the office ornaments of the glass master craftsman R. Lalique (including auction prices with guide of the values of the market) "by GG Weiner with a foreword by (the present) Lord Montagu de Beaulieu and a preface by BBC Antiques Roadshow specialist Eric Knowles.-Lalique Mascot Feature: by David Disere: The Owl, (Hibou in French) is one of the rarest car mascots according to most Lalique mascot dealers and collectors. Although nobody actually knows how many of the rarer mascots were produced, the fact remains that the number of known examples is much, much smaller compared to the other Lalique car mascots. These handful become available very rarely and the existence of only a small number is known. Most Lalique experts regard the Renard (Fox) as the rarest mascot, with the Hibou coming in second place. Others include the Comète (Comet), Epsom (Horse), Tête de Belier (Ram’s Head), Tête de Paon (Peacock’s Head) and the Pintade (Guinea Hen). The Hibou is Model Number 1181 and was produced in January, 1931. It is thought to only have been made in clear and frosted glass. The mascot is, in a word, stunning. Every detail is perfect, from the intent, wide-eyed stare of the bird to the tension in its body, crouched as if poised to take flight at any moment.Perched on a round base, the Hibou is approximately 10 centimeters tall. Although the hood ornament may be small, its price tag is anything but. One of the highest recorded prices was attained in an Artcurial Auction in October 2013, where a Hibou (with sight tail damage) sold for almost $155,000 (USD). Car mascots became popular in the years between WWI and WWII when most car designs featured a radiator cap, which was a natural perch for an ornament. The mascots began disappearing as new designs saw the radiator move underneath the hood, and as a result, there are a relatively small number of any radiator cap mascots still in existence today. Many Lalique collectors can only dream of a full collection. Regardless of buying power, there are so few of the rarer mascots such as the Hibou on the market that they may forever elude even the most prolific collectors. OK, so does rarity affect the price of a wholly damaged example we have acquired? Well yes & no! We acquired this very damaged example in Paris in February 2018 and it came direct from the family that have owned it since it was mounted onto a Bugatti Type 57 sports tourer that was involved in a terrifying accident in 1932 where it rolled, however the mascot survived having been broken in several places and it is still mounted onto its original metal radiator cap! (see image). -La magicien du verre: René Lalique... René Lalique (French, 1860–1945) was a master glass artisan working through both the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. The designs for these automotive mascots known as Bouchon de Radiateurs, were produced during the short Art Deco period from 1925 until 1931. Production ended with the ocupation of the Wingen-sur-Moder factory by the Germans who took over the Alsace region in 1940. Production began again in 1947 under the control of his son Marc, and then these were marketed as presse-papiers (paperweights or desk ornaments). Recently re-introduced for a short period and promoted as 'Mascottes' from the 1990's through to 2015 and all have now been deleted from the range and their catalogue. Many books have been written on him and his glass etc. but up to now none have the fully detailed information as set-out in these books! La magie du verre: René Lalique ...René Lalique (français, 1860-1945) était un artisan du verre de maitre travaillant à travers les périodes Art Nouveau et Art Déco.

La production s'est terminée par l'occupation de l'usine de Wingen-sur-Moder par les Allemands qui ont repris la région d'Alsace en 1940. La production a recommencé en 1947 sous le contrôle de son fils Marc, puis ceux-ci ont été commercialisés sous forme de presse-papiers (papier peint ou ornements de bureau). Récemment réintroduits pendant une courte période et promus comme «Mascottes» de la 1990 à 2015 et tous ont été supprimés de la gamme et de leur catalogue.
