Detailed Automobile Handmade Folk Art, 1910, Car Model in Nickel Silver


This fantastic desk top car model represents a circa 1910 early automobile, although it is unknown when this example was built. The model is greatly detailed and well-constructed. All metals are "German silver" plate over brass, as well as a few brass elements. The tires are ribbed rubber tubing, and the storage box in back is wood, with silvered trim. It is a wonderful decorative item, and would be a great compliment to any automotive collection.
