Accessory Mascots

Miscellaneous:  1920-1925 Roman Gladiator.

1920 -1925 Silvered bronze mascot of a Roman Gladiator, signed to the base Varnier.  This is an absolutely fantastic mascot and was one of two designs by the same sculptor.  Possibly distributed through the French retailers Marvel however it is not marked.  This mascot is unusual and it is worthy of note, that the fighter is holding his sword in his left hand with his small round shield in his right, combat mascots of this type almost always hold the weapon in their right hand.
