The action twins hood ornament, 1931. As the wind or even a hand moves the propeller, the twins move up and down as they crank the whirlygig propeller. A design in motion.
Well it has been 6 years since Bonhams had one of these for sale and it is the last time of record seeing a complete one for sale, or even one of merit. When I first seen one on T.V. on the Storage Wars, "Driving Miss Barry" episode I was captivated.
I had to have one and decided to collect hood ornaments in July after seeing the image on a repeat show. So here it is, my action twins hood ornament - the reason for my collection and my prize !!
I love it - very expensive but a good one. The good ones are hard to find and Bonhams are the most expensive place, but for the rarity a good price. A beautiful Art Deco car hood ornament.
