    Hello Egon,

    I am pretty sure, that Bugatti-Guru Herman is the man to know it. Inscription on the knob shows "Repusseau". Repusseau&Cie. was one of the leading automotive suppliers for parts like suspension, and brakes.
    Got a detail pic of a dashboard of a later Type, that shows an indicator for route and reserve. Pretty sure, that is a shock- operator.Bugatti-bug57dash2-jpg

    Marvin Meit has this knob available on his Model Motorcars Bugatti site. Here is the description: "Our new Shock Absorber Adjuster Knob is a faithful reproduction of the Siata controller for the friction shock absorbers so often seen on cars of the 30's. Similar in design to the Dufaux Repusseau knobs provided with the Bugatti kit, these Siata knobs mount on the dashboard and allow the driver to adjust the tension on the friction shock absorbers. Common on Alfas, but also seen on early RR's."
