    I picked this up quite a while back, I'm thinking I should list it but I need some descriptors. Copper, brass, brutalist. What else? I can't find anything that would be a signature anywhere. Stands 5" tall. Just a shop project? It appears to be 2 pieces braised together, colored, distressed and then the brass overlay drizzled. Help, please!

    Looks like some welder had a little fun off the clock.

    I think you've kind of named it in your description to us!! 'Artsy Copper Vase with Brass Drizzle Overlay at the Top'....and add whatever else...size, burnishing, etc???? I think it's neat & pretty....the brass gives it 'Pop'!!!

    Nice "unknown artist" piece. I like picking up copper enameled plates and it seems there was a period of time when a lot of folks were creating their own, 60's I guess. My plates sell but don't usually fetch a high price but I also sold a copper enameled broach and that was a hit. I think this vase will do all right!

    I wouldn't be surprised if it's not a recent-ish Chinese import originally from Home Goods. They sold similar there.

    Thanks, everyone! Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything, guess I wasn't. Cheers!
