A Rare Victoire 'Spirit of the Wind' by Rene Lalique at No Reserve
RENÉ LALIQUE (FRENCH, 1860-1945)
A 'Victoire' Car Mascot, design introduced in 1928, crystal glass, press-moulded, frosted and polished, Marcilhac catalogue no.1147

Another interesting lot in this sale is a children’s Austin J40 Pedal Car Estimated at £1,800 - £2,400 built by disabled minors in Wales.
Fondly known as the 'Joy Car' or 'Junior Austin', the 'J40' was manufactured from 1955 to 1971 by disabled miners at a factory in the village of Tiryberth, near Bargoed in South Wales.
Built at the instigation of Lord Nuffield, owner of BMC, soon after the Second World War, they were sold in Austin showrooms for £20, which was a considerable price at the time. It has a dummy engine with spark plugs, a handbrake and electric lights and a horn.
This example is finished in red with tan upholstry and is the subject of an older restoration. Solid, original and complete, it would benefit from some recomissioning in the form of new tyres/inner tubes and attention to some paint chips/light scratches. One headlamp was loose at the time of cataloguing and should be an easy fix for the new owner.
