This is an extremely rare and is most defiantly the rarest of all the Lalique Car Mascots or Hood Ornaments. The Renard (Fox) was only produced in a clear and frosted finish hardened glass.
They were made to be fitted onto radiator caps with the metal mounts for them made by a separate manufacturer commissioned under an exclusive license to The Breves Galleries in London..
Their cost in the Art Deco period was around £50 a substantial sum in those days.
