Tony's Top 50 Metal Mascots
by Tony Wraight

  8 - Three Wise Monkeys  

For the past thirty years I have been the world’s foremost dealer in metal and glass pre-war mascots of quality, and I thought it would be interesting for you to see photographs of the very finest that I have found during the past few years.

  6 - Egyptian Goddess  

Of the possible 20,000 different types of mascots used on cars since 1900, there are only a handful that can be called true ‘Works of Art’. My personal favourites are ones that combine style and sense of movement, amusing animal or character subjects, plus ones that represent the grandeur of a bygone age. I leave the history and research of mascots to a person far more proficient than myself - Michel LeGrand has covered this already in great depth in his exceptional books 'Mascottes Automobiles' and 'Mascottes Passion'.
