Flying Quail Car Mascot, an original accessory used on the Ford Model A
In 1927 the Ford Model A was introduced. It carried the first standard Ford hood ornament, a handsome quail in flight, cast in zinc and nickel plated. Manufactured by Stant Machine Company, the quail ornament remained unchanged until it was replaced by an ornament depicting a greyhound in 1933.
This was item #4 in the hood ornament auction.
