      Thank you, Bethany. I think that’s the way I’m leaning towards… they are quite pretty in their original brass.

    Leave them they are perfect. Your so lucky to have gotten them. I bet they make you smile each time you see them.

      I do love them. I’d been looking for a horse “bust” (?!?) for a while, and to stumble onto TWO!?? I was pretty tickled.

      I’m leaning towards leaving them au natural. I love how many people have defended the brass!

      I love how confidently you say, “Brass is neutral”. I get nervous when it comes to mixing metals, but if brass can stand alone as a “I match everything”…

        It can! I love metallics and I think of them as classics. Like beige but better:)

          Oh, I love that “Like Beige but Better”… You’ve created a tagline there, lady!

      That’s true, Erin. I could just enjoy them like this now… and if I ever get sick of them….

    Leave them – besides brass/gold is big this year, isn’t it?

      You’re so right. Brass and gold are very much in!

    I don’t know, normally I would always say paint them. But they look pretty amazing as they are… I would be tempted to leave them, even though I can’t believe I’m saying that!

      I know. I usually paint everything too… it’s weird to leave them as is.

      But I think I am!

    OMG these are gorgeous! DO NOT PAINT! When you tire of them, sell them to me for$20. then you will have enjoyed them as long as you want and will not be out any money!

      So true… I’m sure a brass aficionado would pay $20 for them. Maybe.

      You should see how cheap brass is at the thrift stores. Maybe it’s altering my perception?
