Vintage Thingie Thursday: Brass Peacock

Today I'm joining Coloradolady for Vintage Thingie Thursday! Be sure to check back to see all the other posters for this week.

I recently acquired this lovely brass peacock:
He's quite large and even with his tail folded, he's quite stunning.

It's possible there might have been a pair of them, but I only have one. Erik suggested he might come in handy as a door stop. I know I'll have lots of uses for him. He would make a great centerpiece on a table, I think!

Thanks for stopping by!

Haven't seen one of these in a while. But peacocks are all the rage again.

Gosh, I think my mom had one like this at one time, I had forgotten all about it! Happy VTT!

That is a wonderful piece. It reminds me of something my parents had once, but I can't think what. TFS!
