I have seen these for years and nobody that I have asked has any idea what they were mounted on. The bottom is flat. They are large for any type of hood ornament and I have never seen one plated. CAN ANYONE SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS MYSTERY ? Dave
Beautiful piece Dave.....very nice art deco design. I would wonder if they were a building adornment of some sort, probably just painted silver originally? Since he's looking down maybe attached at the first floor level, since due to size wouldn't be really high up. Regardless, very cool piece! Darin
