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.
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.
