Autour Du Monde - Historic Aviation Gifts
Cast in airplane aluminum, created as displays for travel agencies, or gifts to VIP travelers. Some were made by WWII mechanics in their spare time. Memories of a time when flight was still a very hands-on affair. Highly collectable now, originals from the forties and fifties are hard to find. Screaming Spitfires from the Battle of Britain, stately four-engine Constellations, last Hurrahs for the propeller driven aircraft. Aluminum, hand polished. 1930s first class souvenir, desk bound.
