DALLAS, TX.- An important Tiffany Studios Leaded Glass and Bronze Golden Turtleback Tile Lamp, circa 1910, is expected to sell for $100,000+ in Heritage Auctions' Dec. 4 Tiffany, Lalique & Art Glass Signature Auction in New York.

"This auction offers an extensive private collection of Tiffany glass and bronze desk items, including some very rare models in exceptional condition," said Nick Dawes, Vice President of Special Collections at Heritage Auctions. "As always, Heritage is pleased to present another strong showing of works by Rene Lalique, including several classics in addition to jewelry designs, vases and automobile mascots."

Heritage's global reputation as a leader in Lalique at auction is well represented in a stunning Amber Serpent Vase, circa 1924, standing 9-3/4" high, which may hammer for $40,000+ and a wheel-carved Tourbillons Vase with Black Enamel detail, circa 1926, may also sell for $40,000+.
