Stylized Sculptures:  1930s The Two Flyers.

This is a rare 1930s French metal mascot that is not referenced in any other mascot literature, however they can also be found in glass.  Standing six inches tall not including the wooden mounting block and marked DC to the base, it depicts the French pioneer aviator Dieudonné Coste who was the first person to make a non stop flight from Paris to New York.  It took Coste and his flying companion Maurice Bellonte 37 hours, 18 minutes, to complete their 4100 mile journey on the 1st and 2nd of September 1930.  Dieudonné Coste was born on the 2nd November 1892 in Gascony, France and died in 1973.
