Austrian Bronze Inkwell of an Automobile and Driver

About

Oh how rare this subject matter in sculpture appears. We would like to point out that this no small trinket. It is impressive and good sized. The driver is a kick and the car is certainly from the period. The hood opens up to reveal an inkwell. A truly rare and wonderful piece of auto related sculpture.
