Black Man Marching Band Leader With Cymbals Car Mascot

French Title is "Monsieur Loyal", Brevet SGDG, France, 1925, Composed of nickel metal. This is a very rare French mascot treated in the manner of " the American black man. "

This came up early in the year and from an auction in England. There are only about 4 black male men mascots that I have ever seen pictures of.

The colour picture is of the one auctioned and the one in Michel Legrands book is the monochrome image I have included for comparison to the stand out difference in outfits. Apparently that regularly happened !~

This is my 100th post !!!! And hopefully I will start to put on the other car mascots that I never had put on before, I seem to have a couple drawers full.

    Bring on the next one hundred!
    Well done Phil!
    Congratulations on Monsieur Loyal!
  2. rniederman rniederman, 1 year ago
    It looks like the arms will spin ... right?
  3. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
    Oh I love him Phil and also I am smiling at your cute new profile photo of you and a paint brush :-) How fitting for you xoxo
  4. AmberRose AmberRose, 1 year ago
    Congratulations 100!!! Phil, it's a great opportunity to reiterate how divine I find your collections. Someday I will be up North and demand a visit so I may gaze to my hearts content. Yum!
  5. cogito cogito, 1 year ago
    Very cool. Does it rotate its arms in a whirly-gig type fashion?
  6. antiquarius123 antiquarius123, 1 year ago
    Great car mascot and not at all PC!
  7. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago
    Yes the arms rotate in the wind as the car moves !!
  8. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago
    Thank you vetraio50, please don't grow too old waiting for the next 100 as I have no plans for that, but come to think of it - when I joined this site I never dreamed that I would be posting 100 things, kind of makes the world go round or am I just spinning in my chair ?
  9. mikelv85 mikelv85, 1 year ago
    Really nice Phil ! He looks like a minstrel from the pre-vaudeville days. Not very PC as antiquarius123 said by today's standards, but minstrel shows were distinctly American musical theater after the civil war.

    A nice post for your 100th, as for it being politically correct, it was PC in it's day.
    I love the new profile picture of you wielding your paintbrush like a sword!
    Is that why Lucy looks so apprehensive? :-)
  11. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago
    Thanks David, it was my first caricature that I ever did, so my brush was chinese fingerpaint deadly !~
  12. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 1 year ago

  46. Signaholic Signaholic, 12 months ago
    Very cool piece Phil, how did you ever decide to collect hood ornaments?
  47. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 12 months ago
    I would say it must have been an episode of Storage Wars, and Hester found them, I guess they were planted however by the show. Then I bought some books on mascots from an auction in Germany, then more books and a couple people I met who could guide me as to originality.
  48. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 12 months ago
    Thank you pw-collector and Moonstonelover21 for the loves, sending right back to you !~

    Thanks very much Roycroftbooks - its a bit late but would have loved to see them
    in person sent it to a friend to take a look. Some of the harder to find ones may be recasts and would really have to see in person. Thank you for thinking of my collection, Phil.
  54. Roycroftbooksfromme1 Roycroftbooksfromme1, 12 months ago

  55. PhilDavidAlexanderMorris PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, 12 months ago
    Yes Gary, it would have been fun to take a look in person - there were so many. Sometimes when there is a big collection you have to really check because you may find a diamond in the rough !~Phil.
