Once this was the pinnacle of chique, a pair of animals as decor on your beautifully set dinner table. Fazants, roosters, quails or little rabbits. As I write this down, I am actually wondering if these animals on the table weren't some kind of hidden menu cards. Like the animal standing in the middle was served later as the main course. I have to look into that. 

 

But in most of the homes of a certain standing these table pieces were in a cabinet for 360 days a year and in the middle of the table for about 4 evenings. 

 

Now a days it is an obsolete habit. But that should not be a problem, because today it is trendy to have little figurines of animals on display all year around. Not during dinner, with all the vegan and veganism going round, but somewhere nice in your home. 

 

So where these pigeons were once the centre piece of a table, you can now place them anywhere you want. They probably were once silver plated, but the Help of the previous owner, or the previous owner herself, was rather a fanatic polisher. So the silver plate was polished off, almost completely. There is a slight trace visible on the belly of one of the pigeons, but that is it. 

 

So now they are brass of copper. I really do not know the difference in English. (Feel free to explain). And the good thing is, they are solid. So rather heavy, which makes them very stable as well. 

 

They are rather dark now but if you give them a good polish, they will shine like a star. 

 

It is a pair, probably husband and wife. The price stated is for the pair and they will not be sold separately. 

 

Dimensions: 

Wife: height 14 cm, length 22 cm, width 6 cm. 

Husband: height 15 cm, length 22 cm, width 6 cm.
