Brass Road Runner Bird I found cleaning basement 7 1/2 " Long -3 1/2 inches tall . No markings on it and it is heavy I did not clean it . Is it a decoration ? It is heavy and I have no idea what it was used for . The bird is screwed to brass base and screws are phillips head and tarnished and rusty . any idea's ?

I know his song :-)
If you're on the highway and Road Runner goes beep beep.
Just step aside or might end up in a heap.
Road Runner, Road Runner runs on the road all day.
Even the coyote can't make him change his ways.

Road Runner, the coyote's after you.
Road Runner, if he catches you you're through.
Road Runner, the coyote's after you.
Road Runner, if he catches you you're through.

That coyote is really a crazy clown,
When will he learn he can never mow him down?
Poor little Road Runner never bothers anyone,
Just runnin' down the road's his idea of having fun.

    Merry Christmas Mani, blessings to you and yours.
    Definitely not a hood ornament, but road runners were popular pieces of Jewelry in the 1940's and 50's, so they probably just made it as an ornament. I think the big question here is " Was this made by the ACME Corporation ?" !~

    I didn't think it was a hood ornament but the weight of it is so heavy , I think your right it is a table decoration maybe since it is so large
    Thank you Phil !!!!!!!!!!! I had no doubt it was anything real special but unique
    I appreciate you looking at it . There is one spot that is rough in under side I tried to look for writing or mark but to no avail :-(

    Mustang that could be it ? But I saw one just like it on a large square piece of marble . Would make a nice one though you may be right !!!!!!!! :-) Thank you I will use him to hold down my papers . He is left over from when we had a Antique shop several years ago and I would guess we got him at auction in a box lot years ago . We have been closed 6 years now .
