I picked these 2 items at a garage sale .I think they might be hood ornaments .The glass piece is moulded it may just be a lid for a dish.
The other piece is brass coated Zinc.

    The glass one is probably a float bowl centrepiece :)

    That frosted glass one is French. Too bad you don't have the rest, it would be worth quite a bit
