Arrow Car Mascot Signed By Darel, Circa 1920 Made For Mondan & Wilson Garage, France
The Mondan garage in France, was one of very few garages who had mascots made for them. This mascot is strikingly similar to another one that was made by Darel in 1925 in France, but not for a garage. This one is nice because of the original decorative bolt that was made with it. The bolt can come off and be replaced with a motometer, thermometer for the car radiator.

I add this to hood ornaments category since there is no Car Mascot category. Car mascots were the words used then and now by England and France for the european mascots. I prefer the European mascots by far since they were the first nations to come out with them and produced superior models made of bronze and chrome plated or silvered bronze.

Right now I just have a clear lucite base with this one but someday may find a nice marble or wood base to display properly.
Update: 5/17/2016 - I put it on this depression glass stepped Art Deco base and photographed it today.

    As silly as it sounds... I never heard of "car mascot" until I met you, Phil. In the US, it's always been hood ornament which does sound boring. I love what you did with the base by adding glass. Very clever of you and gives a totally new look with flair.
