Lalique for Bugatti ‘Dancing Elephant

Lalique pay homage to the wonderful imagination of sculptor Rembrandt Bugatti (1884-1916), in this clear and frosted crystal ‘Dancing Elephant’, the iconic mascot Rembrandt designed for his brother, Ettore Bugatti to adorn the radiator of Bugatti’s ambitious automobile, the Type 41 Royale. Intended to be the most luxurious car in the world, only six Royales were built between 1929 and 1933, with just three being sold, due its launch coinciding with the Great Depression.

Created in a limited edition, the ‘Dancing Elephant’ is based on Rembrandt Bugatti’s original moulds and was crafted using the highly specialized lost-wax casting technique. The figure sits on an engineered metal collar, bearing the Bugatti emblem.

Height: 8 inches (20 cm)

Complete with original box and certificate of authenticity co-signed by Silvio Denz, President of Lalique and Massimiliano Ferrari, MD of Bugatti International S.A., this example is numbered 5 of 431.
