Accessory Mascots

Male Figures:  Old Bill - Bust.

Old Bill, in bust form.  Old Bill was a jovial, walrus moustached British Tommy wearing a scarf.  Made popular in The Bystander's Fragments From France, a magazine which was published during the First World War.  The mascot was introduced shortly after.

He was based on one of many Bairnsfather cartoon characters.  Made from bronze or an oxidized silver finish - as in this example.

Three sizes, for cars and motorcycles.  Things to note are the bullet hole in his hat and the Bruce Bairnsfather signature on top.  Also a reg. number stamped around the rim.

Old Bill was produced by the Lejeune company who still holds the original patterns for the mascots and will still produce them to special order.
