Two Vintage Brass Cornish Pixies

A lovely pair of vintage brass Cornish Pixies originally off a table dinner gong and produced by Peerage of England. Peerage brass appeared shortly after WW2 but I am unable to precisely date the brass castings. Pixies are an integral part of West Country mythology and culture. Dinner gongs were found in holiday guest houses in Devon and Cornwall during the  50s / 60s  and were also bought as holiday souvenirs. Gongs maybe out of fashion now, but pixies never will be. The brass Pixies are approx 16 cm in height and can be utilised in projects or displayed as is.
