Mascots of Motion

Steve Purdy's avatar Steve Purdy Vote Code: 65292

Henri Lalique was one of the most notable artists working in glass and crystal during the first half of the 20th century. He and his company produced over 30 different "mascots," or hood ornaments that were sold to high-end luxury automobile owners to adorn their vehicles. This is one of the most popular that I photographed on an early 1930s Duesenberg at the Concours d'Elegance on Amelia Island, Florida. The Lalique company still exhists and they still produce a few of these mascots.
