French Topaz Bantam Rooster Rene Lalique Car Mascot c.1928
From our Rene Lalique collection, we are pleased to offer this fabulous Topaz Coq Nain car mascot. The mascot modelled as a Coq Nain or Bantam Rooster with its tail feathers in full show as the Rooster leans forwards. The mascot from the Rene Lalique collection model number #1135. These mascots were originally made as car hood ornaments in the 1920s by the famous glassmaker René Jules Lalique, who started a company using his own name, which still creates fine glassware today. See Page 498 of Félix Marcilhac book René Lalique maître-verrier for the Coq Nain mascot.
René Lalique (1860-1945) created his stunning car mascot (bouchons de radiateur) designs
between 1925 and 1931. Their production ceased in 1940, a year after WWII had begun. René’s factory, Verrerie
d’Alsace, in Wingen-sur-Mode was forced to close following German occupation of the Alsace region. René sadly
passed away in May 1945, so did not live to see the end of the war, nor the subsequent re-opening of the factory by his
son Marc. Marc resumed production of his father’s famous mascot designs using the original steel moulds which had
the fortune of being preserved, in spite of the war.
