The Lady Has Wings

I found this lovely lady recently at a thrift shop for 50 cents!
She isn't perfect, but I love her just the same.

Yes, I do believe it's a hood ornament - but I have no idea from when or what model. I just knew I needed to add her to my collection - since I'm such a deco freak! And, I mean - fifty cents!!

I thought when I first saw her that she might be part of a trophy. She is very lovely. Love T

Oh! I was all excited because I thought I knew what "she" was - I mistakenly thought it was the Flying Lady that was on the Rolls Royce cars - but alas, she is not the same. I did find a really neat story about THAT lady, if anyone is interested, you can cut & paste this link: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1896156/Wings-of-desire-the-secret-love-affair-that-inspired-Rolls-Royce%27s-flying-lady.html
