Glass Mascots

Red-Ashay:  Speed Head - Male.

A rare racing Speed Head mascot by Red-Ashay.  This example is mounted on one of their colour-changing mascot bases of the late 1920s.  Inside the base there is a cylinder around the bulb which carries four coloured filters:  Red, orange, blue and green.

The shaft on which this cylinder is carried passes through to the front of the mounting base and is attached to a four-bladed propeller.  When the vehicle reaches a speed of 20 mph or so, the fan starts to turn and the coloured filters cause the glass mascot to change colour!
