Here's a cool little lion ornament I picked up at a local auction last weekend. Not sure exactly where it came from but it's about three inches long and just under a 1lb. I tested with a magnet and it will not stick. Tail is broke off but I loved the way it sits on the pedestal ready to pounce. Anyone have an idea where this came from?

    I have one too, and in perfect condition with holes in the bottom at front and back to be mounted on something. I would love to know where it went originally

    It is a after market hood ornament from an Australian 1951 to 54 fj holden car you could get kangaroos and all sorts but the symbol for the Holden car company is the lion pushing the stone but in the early days meany small foundries would make cheep after market ones like that to make extra cash the Holden car company is to make its last Australian car in 2017 when GMH leaves the country. GMH is going to keep the name HOLDEN and put them on cheep imports the Australian public are not happy the name HOLDEN has always associated with AUSTRALIA.
