Mercedes-Benz

A unique and important bronze car mascot of exceptional quality, by renowned sculptor Max Daniel Hermann Fritz (German 1873-1948). The unusually large, 10 ¾ inch (27 cm) mascot depicts a speed god with the Mercedes-Benz 3-pointed star emblem on his forehead, astride a lightning flash, flying above a globe. This in turn is mounted on a circular base which bears the artist’s signature. No other example of this mascot is recorded in any of the accepted reference works on the subject.

Length overall: 10¾ inches (27 cm)

Judging by its large size, this mascot would have been fitted to a large Mercedes-Benz model such as the first series 770K Grosser, introduced in 1930, or possibly a slightly earlier Typ 680S.
