Cadillac wheel cover: Real or imagined?

Wouldn't a dogbowl be smaller diameter?

 

I also think an original by the way it's engineered. It's notched for a valve stem and not sure what the hole in the retainer ring is for, unless the Cad wheel had some type of locator pin for correct orientation or to keep the cap from spinning on the wheel.

 

*edit* I see there are two holes 180° out on the retainer so they're probably drain holes.

You may be right.

 

Quick perusal of 41 Cad pix on the net show cars with full covers like the OP, but also some with smaller dog dish and beauty rings.  Maybe there were options or different series had different caps?
