Looking for information on radiator mascot

This bronze car mascot was owned by the Daubuz family. Originally French Hugenot’s, in time they became extremely wealthy Cornish tin mine owners and smelters.

Argyle Bonnet Mascot

I believe the mascot which is entitled Argyle Car 1905-10 - graced the bonnet of their 10-12HP Argyll Landaulet.

Above is a photo of the car from the Daubuz family photo album. The motor museum library kindly identified the car for me. The mascot is 4 inches at its widest and approximately 4 inches tall. It doesn't appear to have a sculptors signature.
