British Factory Mascots

Manufacturer:  Alvis 1920-1967.  A Collection Of Hares.

A full collection of the four main Alvis hares that were fitted to various Alvis models during the 1920s and 1930s.  They range in height from 108mm to 118mm.  All have small differences, the rarest is shown on the left, known as Big Paws and usually found in brass and unmarked.

AEL took over the production of the hares in the later years and their mascots are marked AEL around the base.  Some are still produced by the company even today for the Alvis car club.  However, many unauthorized copies exist, most I have seen are of the paws down variant.
