Accessory Mascots

Bug Deflectors:  Bug Bird.

Bug Bird, produced in the 1930's.  The body is made from Bakelite and the wings are made of steel and chrome plated, it also has glass eyes.  There were many different designs available.

These items were often used instead of a true mascot to keep insects away from the vehicle's windscreen.  On this example you can see the fixing clip used to fix it to the bonnet centre strip.
