Packard Hood Ornaments

These Packard hood ornaments are among the most beautiful ever produced, but don’t call them “swans,” at least not around any Packard aficionados.  This Packard mascot was originally called a pelican and was based on the Packard family crest.  There seems to be considerable disagreement on the specifics, but somewhere along the line Packard began referring to the design as a “cormorant.”  No matter what you call it, there is no denying that it is one gorgeous bird.
