    Rare Bronze Mascotte "Ailes Chimere" Small 145mm
    Apart from this one example I have not been able to locate one from the internet. There is a book called "Mascottes Fantaisies de 1910 a 1953," which is a book on french catalog pages of mascots which shows an example of these wings. I did not include the mascot page as it was done sometime in the 90's and is made up of really bad 4th generation photocopied images, although he is a world expert.

    I got the wooden base out and threw it away, as it was a very poorly made one. I hope someday to get the bolt out and use it in unison with some other mascot. The wings have a beautiful curl to them.

    Have never seen another for sale or not pictured in a book. Wish mine never had a broken top feather, but you have to take them as you find them, when they don't come up for auction. This one I purchased from France, where I find all the best French mascots.

      Thank you NevadaBlades for the comment, this one would be so best if it was not with a broken feather. But I guess wings are not easy to manage.
