Brass animal figurines remind me a bygone era when people smoked cigarettes, wore cufflinks, and drank in the afternoon. They're a mix of a little bit of history and a little bit of fun. Because of their age, they have a beautiful natural patina, but if you prefer a true brass gold, give them a good polish.
These brass animal figurines are mostly decorative, but they can also serve as paper weights or book ends, depending on the size.
