A "The Kid" mascot by Jean Verschneider, 1925,
This is an amazing item from the Golden Age of Silent Film and the Golden Age of Automobilia. "The Kid" by Jean Verschneider is an exceptional and extremely rare car mascot made in 1925. Jackie Coogan is "the Kid" in this most successful film with Charlie Chaplin.

This mascot was fashioned as Jackie Coogan's personal mascot and cast in a limited edition in three different finishes and two sizes. This example here is the larger 6¼ inch size, with the rarest finish and deluxe ivory face. The base is signed 'The Kid,' on the front, and 'Jean Verschneider 122' on the rear. It is in exceptional and totally correct condition.
