An Art Deco period car bonnet (hood) ornament in the form of an angry cockerel. These were usually mounted on the radiator cap and were popular in the 1930's when it was common to choose your own mascot instead of using one from the marque. This example is nicely detailed and is set on a stepped brass base. The figure itself is white metal and looks to be silver plated. No makers marks found, it is possible it was marked to the underside, but this has been filled with plaster by a previous owner.
Good order, some patina build up as expected in crevices. Underside has been set with plaster.
