Biplane, signed Krone and Sebek.
This is the second ornament that I found that was similar to one featured in an episode of t.v.'s " Storage Wars ". The episode was called Driving Miss Barry, which I had taped when it appeared on a re-run. There is a third hood ornament on that episode that was called 'action twins' which should be super hard to find ! Also the appraisers prices were wrong. The last hood ornament was an action twins mascot, and insted of a grand the last time one sold was for 2000 dollars and that was 6 years ago !~
An airplane mascot which I bought as it is a rare one which comes up for sale rather seldom, I had seen one a while ago on ebay but I believe I saw some very minor flaws with it.
This one is illuminated also, so will hopefully get it working again soon, just love it ! On one side of the plane the light is red and on the other side is green because of a orange and green filter on the sides. The expert who looked at it on the show said it was from the late 1920's or 1930. I did see it in one of my books now saying it is of 1927. The first and last photo here are from the book "The Automotive Mascot Worldwide, un objet d'art encore."
