Lalique-Like Figures Traced
These 3-D busts of frosted glass have almost always been seen offered as "Lalique-type" or attributed to some other pre-WWII French glass company. ACRN traced the figures to an early 1970s brochure of AA Importing Co., an American antique reproduction wholesaler.
The figures, which are types of pedestal paperweights, are slightly over 3″ high each. A raised crown on the chest of the man and a star-like design on the woman led many to think, incorrectly, the pieces were British or other royal family coronation commemorative. The country of origin or manufacturer of these pieces is unknown.
