Emile Brégeon (French, active 1890-1930)

A large, specialty ‘Doctor’s’ car mascot in patinated bronze, the heavy-cast skull and crossbones with original patina, would have been mounted on a car radiator, now set on a swept, oak base.

The symbol of the skull has no shortage of cultural and artistic connotations. Skull imagery featured in pieces presented to doctors by their grateful patients, following a recovery from illness – examples include pocket watches, cane handles and paperweights. Stamped BREGEON, French, circa 1920.

Height overall: 8 inches (20 cm)
