François Bazin (French, 1897-1956)

‘Saint Christophe’

A nickel-plated bronze winged radiator mascot, in the centre a panel depicting the Saint carrying the Christ child and embossed ‘SAINT CHRISTOPHE PROTÉGEZ-NOUS’. Mounted on a cylindrical black ebonized base. French, circa 1920s.

Height: 6½ inches (17 cm).

Bazin is regarded as the best of the various French sculptors who included bronze car mascots in their oeuvre. Apart from this rare accessory mascot, Bazin sculpted the ‘Cigogne Volante’ for Hispano-Suiza, and a number of other high Art Deco mascots offering collectors the opportunity to personalise their automobiles during the 1920’s
