American Factory Mascots

Manufacturer:  De Soto 1928-1960.  1939 De Soto.

De Soto, produced in 1939.  Made from die-cast zinc and chrome plated.  Notice how the hair is sweeping back to give the impression of speed.  This style is seen much more as we move from the 1930's into the 1940's and on into the 1950's.
