Thanks for the great picture!

No, that ornament is not a Lalique, it's one of the standard factory offerings. And the coachwork is standard Packard coachwork, not a LeBaron.

Dave (O-D), thank you for proofreading, I mistook the car from Iceland with the 1942 LeBaron from the King of Norway.

O_D,

Is that style of hood ornament called a "feather"?

It is the successor of the bail (or bale) used up to 1940 and for 1941, the seniors had this style while the juniors had a smaller version without the plastic. The feather was cast into it instead. The Henney-Packards for 1941 and 1942 were usually juniors but had senior trim so they had this type too.

I was almost convinced that the hood ornament pictured above will find the one or another taker. One can't get more art nouveau.
