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.

    Wonderful pieces Phil ....I know the feeling when it comes to selling. It's still a buyers market . Most things are just not selling for what they used to.

    Phil these take my breath away ! I love them and they arrived sooner than I thought . Just spectacular and show stoppers . Love Love ! The pair look great together but I would understand one might go to be replaced by something different someday . xoxoxo

    Hiya Phil, hope you are well. Fab finds! AND fab new photo of you. I'm a fan a pops of blue. I need to figure out ebay too. Got a very few things that need to make room for other things. Don't want to but they do no one much good packed away.

    Absolutely stunning Phil!

    Beautful pair, almost look like a pair of bookends. I find e-bay is best for rare, sought after items. It brings the world yo your door. Just be sure to have a reserve, and research completed items, before making your listing.
  12. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago
    They often produced car mascots and companies then made bookends also using the same figure which could be screwed to a base or a car hood.

    These are gorgeous. So you are getting short of space there? Welcome to the club!
  35. Jono Jono, 1 year ago
    Very nice Phil. When you attach them to the wood base, do you use a bolt? What happens to the original round base? The line are fantastic on these!
  36. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago
    On these they would not have a round base on them unless it was attached to the radiator cap.
