Lalique glass is a name synonymous with French luxury. Founded in 1888 by glassmaker and artist Renee Lalique, Lalique is best known for their frosted art glass. During the early 20th century they were a popular producer of hood ornaments, perfume bottles and vases, especially during the Art Deco period.
Lalique has produced frosted glass cat figurines in a number of realistic designs – crouching, sitting, grooming and lying down, short haired and fluffy. They have also produced wild cat figurines – such as lions and jaguars – and a glass cat face brooch in a variety of colors.
Prices for Lalique cats on auction sites range from around $150 for the lying down “happy cat” figurine, to over $1000 for larger pieces like the large 13″ Rajah jaguar, with most pieces selling in the low to mid hundreds.
