Brass is a wonderful metal to collect. So many items have been created in brass making it a common collectable. It is a traditional and very solid metal. Brass will cast a warm and gentle glow wherever it is. Even if an item is tarnished, it seems to give it personality and a certain amount of appeal. Somehow as brass items age, they become more and more attractive. We are fortunate that brass items are literally indestructible - if you have collectable brass items you can be confident that they will last you for a very, very long time.
A popular item to collect is brass candlesticks. Many people can recall their grandmother having a pair of brass candlesticks. She would lovingly care for these candlesticks. Every Sunday dinner would feature cheerful candles glowing brightly from those candlesticks. Brass candlesticks can come from many different areas. There are traditionally shaped brass candlesticks and we are now seeing more modern shapes. As artists are more inspired to be creative and "think out of the box" they are creating brass forms that look different from the typical models we have seen in the past. Some brass candlesticks can look like traditional candlesticks from Old Colonial days, others can look like modern art miniature sculptures.
Wall sconces are also popular in brass. You can hang a cheerful candle in a brass wall sconce to emit a lovely glow across a room. Brass wall sconces give a room a lovely look. These give your room a classic and somewhat old fashioned style to them. Many people love the way brass matches nicely with so many types of home dï¿½cor. Brass is a classic metal and it can go with warm or even cool or neutral shades.
Pitchers are also made in brass. These sweet looking pitchers look lovely on a windowsill or on top of a bureau. They remind us of a simpler time. Many people like the look of a brass pitcher.
