<br />
A rare prototype for the iconic Jaguar mascot that has adorned the bonnet of millions of cars made by the British marque is tipped to sell for £10,000.<br />
<br />
The 8ins long bronze ornament of a leaping Jaguar was made almost 90 years ago to replace an earlier version that looked more like a domestic cat.<br />

Sir William Lyons, the co-founder of Jaguar Cars, was disappointed with the original mascot made for the 1935 SS Jaguar saloon car.
