This nice deco piece was picked by my friend Robert last week, but he's not sure what it came off of. We think '42 DeSoto, but not 100% sure. Anyway, I'm making him the base for it, out of walnut and a mystery wood bottom, nothing is attached just yet, but I'm working on it!!! Too Hot here right now!!
Wish I could find these too, gotta start lookin'!!

    Desoto Goddess, 1942 & 1946-48
    Hope it has some imprinting on bottom as to maker etc. proving originality.

    This design in motion was offered in 1942, but only until Feb 9 when civilian auto production was suspended. Following the war years it was again used on 1946-48 automobiles. It exists in lucite and metal as shown here.

    I love the way designers dreamed up this type of pure art for cars.

    Thank-you Perry, Sean, and Zowie for the nice comments!!

    It's a pleasure I will find out 1 day what car it comes off I'll wait for when my partner is here & am on this site I'll show him he may have a idea.
  15. pickrknows pickrknows, 1 year ago
    Zowie, it's from a 1942 DeSoto.
  16. Zowie Zowie, 1 year ago
    Hi I said I would find out, they were put out by General Motor's great piece.
  17. pickrknows pickrknows, 1 year ago
    Thank-you all for showing the love on this beautiful piece. It's all done and going back to it's home, wish I could find one like it too!!
  18. Zowie Zowie, 1 year ago
    I know where there is one but not in as good condition as this & a really good price, it has some pitting that I would just put down to age as it is original & not mounted just sitting on top of metal hood from what I can tell by picture
  19. pickrknows pickrknows, 1 year ago
    Well go get it Zowie!!
  20. Zowie Zowie, 1 year ago
    My partner is not interested as he said would cost to much to redo & sell as that would be what happens to said piece we did think about it & made call until he changed his mind I still think it would be worth it
