Listing Detail Tabs

This is a real little vintage curiosity!!

I have googled extensively- cannot find another knob like this.

A dark reddish colour with circular ribbing around the edge.

In the centre in a raised oval frame is;
"ROLUX"

The knob is round, curving downward near the outer edge.

There is a deep round recess on the back- presumably for the knob to be pushed onto a stick or something similar.

Approx 7/8" or- closest measurement- 22mm diameter of the above recess.

Appears to be a type of very hard rubber.

In good undamaged condition; some dark marks on reverse; some tiny edge flecks off the edge of the round recess.

Just over 1 3/4" or 42mmm across

The only items with the name "Rolux" are a very unusual French car - and a very vintage lawnmower!

We had veteran cars many years ago- wonder if this little oddity was amongst those parts?

The Rolux was a French automobile manufactured from 1938 until 1952.
The engine was mounted behind the driver with chain drive to the back axle, the body was an open two-seater with no doors.
In 1947 production moved to Clermont-Ferrand, and the company was renamed Société Rolux.
In 1950 the engine, now by Ydral, grew to 125 cc and a 175 cc version, the VB61 was also introduced.
A proposed closed car was shown in 1946 but never reached production,
