Elegant hood ornaments and radiator mascots once decorated the tops of radiators on early American automobiles and were placed there to make the vehicle look good. Orginally they were made to replace the often plane radiator caps. When the radiator was concealed under the hood the hood ornament were still used on the hood. Hood ornaments were often works of art and are now highly prized by collectors.
The radiator mascot first started with the invention of the Boyce Moto-Meter used to measure water temperature. H. H. Boyce pantented this device in 1912 and the radiator mascot and hood ornament grew from his invention.
