Morante did quite a few Art Deco statues in the mid 1920's and did his fair share of Art Deco car mascots produced. The modeling and the detail extends to the face, nicely etched.
I first seen this mascot at an auction in France, single pictured, and I seen this pair at the same time. I ended up with the pair of them, even though it was so hard to deal with Cottswolds. It is so hard to deal with someone who only deals with bank draft. Got these home November 22, 2013.
I have had no thought to keeping the pair of them, but I may try selling one of them by ebay, which I have only done one sale on ebay so far, sometime last year. I hate selling but I guess I have to learn how sooner or later.
