Negro Bougie Oleo Mascot/Hood Ornament M-193
Negro Bougie Oleo Mascot/Hood Ornament. This mascot is modeled after a sculpture of the Negro advertising legend "Bougie Oleo.” It was the sensational advertising logo of the Oleo Spark Plug Company in France at the turn of the century. The smiling face of "Bougie Oleo" was embossed on every spark plug produced and all advertising literature and brochures. This piece is made of bronze and measures approximately 4 inches high. It is a reproduction. This is an individual piece there may be small differences between the pictures and the physical piece. This adds to the exclusivity of this ornament.
