Look at this Patina !

I've been so housebound because of the heat & humidity ... I had a few extra bucks that was burning a hole in my pocket -so I braved the heat & went to the GW -- ;)

I found this solid brass deer with this Gorgeous Green patina . There's 2 candle holders on his antlers that just screw off , so they're coming off. The color just struck me . He's about 8" tall & I have no idea what to do with him - but I love him !!

He's a beauty for sure. I agree, the candle holders just detract. I like th eidea of a gnome with him. But how to find the right gnome?

Beautiful wind chime with the 2 candle holders turned upside down handing on chain or wire they will look like bells. Would be lovely hanging in a tree or attached to post with arm might have to drill into his back to get a place to attach chain. Or mount him on a post or piece of iron up about 6 ft off ground. Could you find an old shelf bracket of wrought iron to mount him on top of? He looks like"protector of your yard" very stately! Great buy! Jan

I can see him on your mantel for Christmas or a dining room table display or a front door wreath! Great score!
