Salvador Dali was a leading figure in the 20th-century Surrealist movement. One of his sculptures is available in the upcoming Lalique & Art Glass Signature Auction, presented by Heritage Auctions. The glass and bronze sculpture portrays the debris of an automobile giving way to a horse biting a phone. Along with sculptures and fine art, the upcoming event will showcase a range of glass items.
The source of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s inspiration for his creative expression was nature. The son of Tiffany & Co.’s founder, he worked in design to create many of the company’s Art Nouveau stained glass lamps. One of his daffodil table lamps is available in this sale; it is decorated with daffodils and leaves set against yellow background. Also, being offered is R. Lalique’s Comète glass automobile mascot from around 1925. Almost 20 centimeters of clear glass is stylized as a comet’s tail, connecting to a star on a metal mount.
