High Style Art Deco Car Mascots which could be used as bookends also.

These pieces are typical of esteemed works produced by the Editor D.I.M., Rue du Colisee, Paris. They made the most high end Art Deco bronze pieces and chromed a lot of them, mostly the car mascots.

Every work that I have seen by Editor D.I.M are the most stylized Art Deco pieces of any of the 1920's Paris bronze editors, bar none. They are extremely rare and would not surprise to retail at least for 5,000 each.

The fourth photo is from Michel Legrand's book, Mascottes Passion

    Thank you for the kind and very nice comments Hedgewalker, Stillwater, and Kerry,
    you all are kind.

    Thank you Amber Rose, much appreciated. We finally got lots of sun today and the snow that fell in the last 2 weeks was starting to melt. We have tons of snow here, and they were cleaning our parking lot today. We have had records of snow here in our province of Canada, this year. Spring still seems a long way till flowers are anywhere outside.

    Hi Phil - If you like car ornaments you simply MUST go to Manila. I would not recommend Manila as a tourist destination - in fact you would probably have to use duct tape and tranquilizers to get me to go back there. But the public transportation, the "jeepney" is something for the hood ornament lover to behold. The main theme is horses - they depict the marital status and/or number of mistresses of the driver....there are other types than horses. The drivers have these things custom made in metal.....there is a language associated with them. And you have not really lived until you have traveled on a jeepney at rush hour....I don't know if this stuff is on the internet, but I spend some time working there and saw it all with my own eyes:-0

    No problem Phil, you have a collection worthy of a museum. Is that a self portrait you are drawing because it reminds me a lot of Freddie Mercury.
  52. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago
    No I am not drawing it, its actually a photograph that has been turned into a drawing, not me drawing, but a picture of me that I colored. Thank you. There was a resemblance mostly the mustache and hair, I liked my nose and teeth better than I liked Freddie's !~

    Well...NOW these are what we can call rare...and gorgeous too! This reminds me a bit of the works of an Italian-Brazilian sculptor of the 20's named Victor Brecheret. There are many of his works in the streets of Sao Paulo, the city where I live. The most known landmark of the city is one of his works. Check it here:

    And, since you love art deco, check more of his works here:
