French Factory Mascots

Manufacturer:  Hispano-Suiza 1904-1944.  F Bazin Stork.

Hispano Suiza 1920 Stork.  Marked F Bazin.  Made from bronze and silver or chrome plated.  Patented August 8th 1919.  This unusual mascot base design might have been for use with a motor boat.  The signature looks a little uneven but I believe that is because the hollow base has a dent thus distorting it.
