It is part of a hood ornament, that part was the release handle for the hood latch, you pushed the catches on both sides it released the hood latch so you could raise the hood. Looks like it could be from the 40's.

Do you know what car or truck it was for.


Nope sorry, there were a lot of vehicles that used that system back then.
