           iagree  , I'd like one of those key fobs, obviously based on the side cover badge, nice.
                      Also like the turn signals, they look right.

I believe this is an old clear plastic case for the owners manual or documents for an early JDM Bridgestone.....

Picked these up over the years. The cap is from the 60's that the race teams used. Can be seen in some old photo's.

    Does the 'BS' on these stand for Bridgestone as we know it. Seems a strange item for them to make. They look like an aftermarket version, should be a wire coming out of them, no room for dry cells. Is that a switch on the side or an attachment bolt. An unusual item.
   All UK vehicles had similar signals up to approx 1960, we called them 'trafficators', used to jam up on a regular basis. A good bash with a fist on the door pillar usually made them pop out !!!
   Good to see you back keeping us entertained when the site is quiet.

Not sure Brian if these were for an early motorcycle or bicycle (don't think they ever made cars?), but here's the link to the Yahoo auction for y'all to check out.

Might be an early logo. since BS made Bicycles, ,mopeds, etc.marketing traffic cators could be possible. as for cars, maybe Prince offered as an accessory

I'm starting the think that it may not be Bridgestone after all, unless it's super early or something else.

I found this time line info from an official BS Corp. website and this "logo" isn't listed on it.

Maybe the seller saw BS and just assumed it was for Bridgestone.  Maybe it stands for.... Bat Signal!  banana

     Also did a little research.
         Items advertised as 'Apollo turn signal' although not sure where seller found that. Apollo, God of Light and sun amongst many other things, so that fits. You can still find apollo turn signals made by Manfred Mothes, Germany, name may be just coincidence but ones advertised are well (over?) engineered and reasonable quality, so could be German.
     Two screws on upper rear for fixing to vehicle, also a cable lead out formed at bottom rear with what may be a cable clamp. Note red plastic moulding under cable lead out, possibly an insulator ? or a telltail to show indicator light was working.
      On cars these trafficators were electro magnetic operated to lift arm when switched, arm dropped under its own weight. These seem to be spring loaded up but cant see how this is electricaly triggered. Ad write up translation says, 'Wire up, lowering make sami'. So I think they had to be  manually retracted. Sami can can be interpreted as formal friend. I think writer is saying, get your posh mate to pull arm down. I'm open to any other suggestions  :D

      Still a very interesting item, maybe pre war? but at $285 I won't be buying them.
