The bright blue glazed body and hubcaps with drivers in colourful livery, is highlighted with gold details and bears the number ‘5’ to the sides of the bonnet. The lights are electrically powered, and emits from the two open headlamp apertures, and glows via the translucent porcelain drivers. Signed ‘Aladin LUXE, MADE IN FRANCE’ to the underside. French, circa 1935.

The lamp is fully functioning with a twisted silk cable, and period cream Bakelite switch.
