Vintage brass has recently come to my attention as being a great collectible.  It comes in many forms; candlesticks, bookends, paperweights, sculpture, doorknobs, vases and much more.  It will last almost forever and is readily available and very affordable.  Much of the world's finest brass pieces come from India, where the craft of brass and other metal work has been handed down from generation to generation.  With an occasional polish, your brass pieces will look great for years.  So, open your eyes and begin to look at brass in a whole new way.  You'll be surprised at what you find!
