    Perusing some local online auctions and came across this item. Looks like a brass corbel? maybe some type of Egyptian motif? Maybe MCM handle/hardware? Anyone have thoughts? There were not other pictures and no clue to any markings. Google Lens didn't bring back much for me.

    Really difficult to see what that is. What does the seller say about it?

    Description from the seller is “VTG FIGURAL BRASS MANTEL SUPPORT” and that’s it

    it looks repurposed - like a door handle or something.

    Looks like a shelf or mantle support... something like the things that Design Tuscano sells...
    hard to tell if it has any age.

    Not much to go on-but it doesn't strike me as old.
