Accessory Mascots

Female Figures:  1920s Witch On A Roulette Wheel.

1920's French accessory mascot.  Silver plated finish with red and black coloured Enamel Numbers on a spinning roulette wheel.  The witch stands above the wheel as the car proceeds, her broomstick acts as a pointer to indicate the number when the cars stops.  This was a fun mascot and used by gamblers in the 1920s but also used by passengers on early French charabanc trips to pick out the seat numbers.  This French version differs from the more common UK version because it has enamel numbers and the broomstick has a head and is not just a stick as the UK ones.  The design won a Certificate of Merit in L'Auto Magazine competition in 1921.
