    Hello CW friends!!

    I bought these back in December and just getting around to posting them. These came to me from Austria and I paid only $5.00 for the pair. I was told these are fairly rare to come by. And since I've only seen one other, I have to agree. I really like the look of these little hares. They are made of bronze. Though they look much larger than they really are, they're very small and only measure about 2" long and 1" tall.

    Thanks for stopping in for a look!!

    Scott

      Very nice Scott! You're right, you'd never guess the size by looking at the photos, they look much larger. Thanks for sharing :-)

      I am thinking they are stops for very small doors.

      Hi Scott,
      I was reading something on the net the other day on how to know if something is made of brass or bronze here are a couple of links to check out.
