A large clear glass rooster car mascot titled 'Coq Nain' by René Lalique, model number 1135, circa 1928.
René Lalique (1860-1945) was a French jeweller whose glass works of art contributed significantly to the art nouveau movement. His jewellery and glassworks heavily feature animals and sensual woman and is instantly recognisable. During the 1920s, following the 1925 Paris Exhibition, he became even more well know and produced luxury items such as lighting, homewares, car mascots and architectural elements to name a few.
