Le Petit Poucet Automobile Mascot

In the days of hand-built luxury automobiles, the automobile mascot was a highly personal hood ornament that would say something about the owner's sensibilities. This particular mascot is from the French fairy tale "Le Petit Poucet," in which the diminutive hero steals the magical seven league boots from a sleeping giant.
