    I've had this piece for a while and finally figured out what it is - a 1920s Vulcan Car Mascot. He stands about 4 1/2"H, 4 holes in the base for attaching to the car.
    Not sure if they made reproductions of these, hoping someone will know.
    Thanks for looking

      I actually know nothing of these though I should have them in some of my books, but did not look. Its not really something or the type of mascot I collect. However I did contact my friend who has written countless books on mascots and he said:
      " Your mascot is an original and not a repro. The four holes are correct and are present to allow the mascot to be riveted to a rad cap. These mascot castings do vary as to quality of detail and yours is quite good."

      Wow, thank-you very much PhilDMorris and thank-you to your friend!!!
      Car mascots are not something I've ever found before so doing research on this has been tricky - I keep getting sidetracked as there are so many cool ones out there.
