A motor car mascot (or 'hood ornament' in North America) is a decoration for the car and a talisman for the owner, and the quality of artisanship involved in the numerous designs and models has made them eagerly sought-after by collectors. This book surveys the huge variety of mascots and badges available in Europe and North America, introduces the designers, outlines the manufactorers and discusses forgeries and reproductions, as well as the problem of restoration.
