SHE LIVED A LIFE OF PRIVILEGE THAT FEW OF US WILL EVER EXPERIENCE. SHE WAS A WOMAN OF GRACE AND QUIET.....AND SURROUNDED HERSELF WITH EVERYTHING FRENCH. SHE LIVED INTO HER 90'S, "DOWNSIZING" INTO A 3,000 SQUARE FOOT SPACE AND......STILL.....KEPT HER CHERISHED LALIQUE SWANS ON HER DINING ROOM TABLE SURROUNDED BY FRENCH TAPESTRIES, BRONZES AND GILDED FURNITURE. BECAUSE OF HER LOVE FOR THEM, THE FAMILY WAS HESITANT TO PART WITH THEM....BUT KNEW THEY NEEDED TO BE LOVED AGAIN. SO, I PRESENT THEM NOW TO YOU.....AND, SO THAT THEY WILL FIND A NEW HOME, I WILL BEGIN THE PAIR ACCOMPANIED BY THEIR ORIGINAL "SWAN LAKE" MIRROR AT AN OPENING BID PRICE OF $3999.99.....THE PRICE AT WHICH ONE SWAN RECENTLY SOLD (SEE EBAY AUCTION NUMBER 230215284522). THE BEAUTY OF THE SWANS JUST MIGHT HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE THINGS THAT KEPT HER YOUNG FOR SO MANY YEARS. WE KNOW SHE LOVED THEM, AND KNOW THAT YOU WILL LOVE THEM TOO. GOOD LUCK BIDDING!!
Estate Treasure. Breathtaking and Impressive Describe This Large Pair of Lalique Swans with Original "Swan Lake" Etched Mirror. Both Swans Have Their Original Lalique Stickers (One still has the white item number sticker). Both Swans are Signed "Lalique - France". (See Close-up Photo of One Signature.) Lovely Swan with Head Down Measures a Majestic 14 1/2" by 8 1/4" by 7 1/4" Tall and is in Excellent Condition. Swan with Head Up Measures a Majestic 12 3/4" by 7 1/2" by 9 1/2" Tall and is in Very Good Condition. Under Close Examination of This Swan with a Magnifying Glass, I Have Noticed Two Small Dings within a Grooved Area Towards the Bottom on the Right Hand Side, Which is Why They Were....and Are, So Hard to See. (See Close-up Photo) Oval Etched "Swan Lake" Mirror Measures a Majestic 22 1/4" by 32 3/4". I Have Found a Few Surface Scratches (See Close-up Photo)....Again, Must be Looking to Find Them.....Displays Beautifully!! (Any Color Seen Within the Glass is Simply a Reflection of the Chandelier Above.) If You Were to Buy The Three Pieces Today at Full Retail, You Would be Spending between $16,000 and $17,000. It's a Rare Opportunity! Good Luck Bidding!
