Thrift Finds - Lots of Brass

Estate Sales have not been good lately, but here are a few things I managed to find.

Some little brass figures - the mouse can be used as a receipt spike.

A brass house number 5, and an alligator nut cracker. You lift his tail to open the mouth.

Cat letter holder.

And a little souvenir silver plate.

It has different scenes, I think depicting the Crusades?

And has this cute little engraving on the back.

  4. How cute! Love that gator and the cat letter holder.

  5. Aha, I have a similar mouse and never realized why the tale was so long, glad to know its original function!

    LOVE the alligator nut cracker, I don't even like to eat nuts but would start eating them just to use it.
