French Factory Mascots

Manufacturer:  Hispano-Suiza 1904-1944.  Stork.

The elaborate 1920's Hispano-Suiza Stork was mainly given to the company's dealerships.  It often found use as a desk ornament!, notice the riveted wing tips to the base, only found on the early examples.  Reproductions are known, not usual on this machined marble base.  Signed F. Bazin.
