Hello Friends!
Hope I don't get blown out of the house before I finish this posting, we're having a hurricane here on Cape Cod. Do you believe it, another storm, and more ferocious that any other we had in the Winter.

I found this a couple of weeks ago, and even though it's been cut at the wheels, :(, I love it.
It's a heavy little beast.
Any idea where it may have come from,....was it a hood ornament? ( it has that kind of wear ). and WHY on earth would someone have cut it's wheels? Oh well.
Thanks for taking a look,
T
p.s. I forgot to mention that it has a hole on the underside,....it screwed onto something.

    aghcollect, Wow! That's incredible! I now understand why the wheels were cut, to fit into that pillow-like shape. That makes sense.
    Thank You for taking the time to look it up and Thank You for passing it along,
    your kindness is much appreciated!

    Maybe you can find an old marble base from a trophy someone tosses away and mount it on there. Would make a great paperweight. - Too bad you didn't get the whole thing - did you see the auction price on that thing? Geessh
