    I can't tell you if it is Victorian, but it certainly isn't a "cheap knock-off"!

    thanks blunderbuss2. i think it may be modern though. it's just too clean and it has what appear to be modern screws/nuts underneath. it's still nice. sure won't blow over in a windstorm!

    blunderbuss is right. If it LOOKS to GOOD, and you thought enough of it to PURCHASE IT, you should BE HAPPY.

    I'm with blunderbuss2 and mikie. Very pretty and practical. How often do you see THAT!? :-)

    Nice looking set that I would think is modern as well.

    Add some pictures of the feet bottoms and any screw connections to confirm.

    Solid brass-- what does it weigh?

    i don't think it's solid brass, but it is very heavy. i think it's pot metal which has been painted to look like brass.
