French Art Deco Bronze Secret Erotic Mephistopheles Car Mascot/Hood Ornament
This intriguing French Art Deco, patinated bronze car mascot/hood ornament is designed so that when viewed from the front of the car it features a grinning head of Mephistopheles. However from the driver's point of view, a standing nude female figure is revealed. The piece would seem to have been made for export as it is incised in English, made in France and bronze. It is in excellent, all original condition.
