Rare Spirit of Liberty Flag Holder Mascot


Recommended Posts

Offering an incredible 1920s or early 1930s era Spirit of Liberty hood ornament. Includes the metal lady liberty ornament, 10 American flags and some mounting hardware. Also includes the original box, which is flattened and heavily creased / torn but still has amazing graphics

This piece is sold as-found and I am not sure how it fits together or whether any mounting hardware is missing 

Box measures approximately 4 1/2" by 11" and hood ornament is approximately 9" tall at widest point. 

Condition: See photos for exact condition. The box has been flattened and has many tears / creases throughout, as well as missing side flaps. The metal Lady Liberty has some wrinkles / dents and a few scratches but is overall in good condition. All flags have some staining and wear consistent with age. One the top points has come loose on one flag and a second flag has a small portion broken off the bottom (see photo showing this damage). This is sold as-is and mounting hardware pieces may be missing. Overall, a very rare piece and a great display item! 

 

Available this week on eBay at no reserve auction

Nice but looks like there is also something missing from the large round thing in her hand.  The box  is cool.

I think it is missing the mounting for a flashlight bulb which is just around 6volts... Also missing whatever held the flags but the long screws and the washers are to mount it through the radiator and not cause it to leak. I agree that box is cool 😎 


I’m guessing by the little ridges in the back that it held 5 flags, so it has enough mounting pieces and flags for two.

 

I have just the lady, it would be nice to know what held in the bulb.
