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.
