The gorgeous brass dolphin statue is in great to excellent condition. While there are no discernible marks of identification on this gorgeous brass metal art, the incredibly detailed relief-work on the faces and base give evidence that this statue was formed by a highly skilled and experienced brazier. Even though the dolphins appear to be one-piece with the base, there are actually two different sections that are held together with two four-way screws on the inside of the bottom. Another incredibly attractive aesthetic feature incorporated into this nautical statue is contrast. The wonderfully sleek bodies of the dolphins are in stark contrast to the scarred and pitted ocean floor depicted on the base. However, it is important to note that the brazier does incorporate some features in relief on the face of each of the long-beaked "common" dolphins which in turn allows the contrasting sections to blend perfectly. In addition, a greenish-gray patina has developed on this beautifully-aged brass statue - mainly noticeable in the porous dots and lines making up the stunning relief-work. Along with the many attractive aesthetic features on this gorgeous brass dolphin statue, it is also important to point out its incredible balance. Even though the height is greater than the width or depth, the sure-footed flat outer rim of the base helps to provide the impression that the two dolphins are actually in the act of swimming. As if that were not enough, the top dolphin appears to have nearly half of its body hanging over nothing but open space.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, the Chap Stick in the photos is not included in this listing as it was used for scale purposes only.

There are no breaks, cracks, chips, or repair places on this gorgeous brass dolphin statue. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the statue - mainly in the form of slight distress from coming into contact with different surfaces and/or being transported. Also, there is a greenish-gray patina that has developed on the aged brass. In addition, there is a rustic patina developing on the heads of the two four-way screws on the inside of the base.

The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous brass dolphin statue are many. The display case or open collectibles shelf would be enhanced by the addition of this incredibly detailed statue depicting two dolphins swimming over a scarred and pitted ocean floor. Also, the entryway or living area would welcome this beautiful brass dolphin statue for its highly detailed relief work, greenish-gray patina, and nautical ocean charm. In addition, the growing metal art collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this incredibly detailed and well-balanced brass dolphin statue.

The collector will appreciate this beautiful brass dolphin statue for its great to excellent condition, greenish-gray patina, contrasting surfaces, realistic depiction of two dolphins swimming over the ocean floor, nautical ocean charm, and gorgeous overall appearance.

The beautifully-aged brass dolphin statue weighs approximately 65 oz.

The gorgeous brass dolphin statue measures approximately 14 7/8" tall x 11" wide x 9.5" deep.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
