Mates for life, these thirsty swans, quenching themselves at a fountain, were expertly die-cast in Paris on antique machinery dating back to the early 1800's and are a great example of France's metalworking heritage.
Though the actual date or dates of their manufacture is unknown, I have quite a few of these thick and sturdy birds with beautiful lines, angles and curves, and they are all ready to nest atop your next project or creation. Although my vintage supply arrived with a mostly golden patina, I have pictured them in various patinas for you to examine and explore. As always, If ordered in any quantity, I will endeavor to match every piece as closely as possible.
These rare stampings will pack a stylistic punch and add old-world charm and beauty to your artwork, your old frames in need of up-cycling, your new frames, your jewelry, your bookbinding, your scrapbooks, your leatherwork and much, much more!!
I grew up surrounded by my grandparent's collection of ormolu and antique, marble-topped, cast iron furniture masterpieces and many of these heirlooms still grace my home today. The curated Bonjour Collection is a natural extension of my love and appreciation for treasures of the past and I am proud to offer these traditionally-crafted, brass swans and dozens of other amazing items like them, for your creating pleasure.
