It’s the day for unusual characters on Mint! I wouldn’t have thought a pair of cranes would have appealed to me – I normally stick to the safer deer/rabbit theme when it comes to brass figurines, but this pair of birds have been so beautifully styled that it was hard to resist them! Justin’s kindly added new screws to the base, so they’re nice and sturdy, but the birds themselves definitely have a bit of age to them, with most people referring to them as late art deco pieces.
Note: An identical pair of these brass cranes are for sale on chairish.com for $87 (that’s around R1100)!
Dimensions: Tall crane – 29cm tall x 8.5cm in diameter (at base); Stooping crane – 22cm tall x 8.5cm in diameter (at base)
