Large, solid brass grasshopper. In certain regions of China, grasshoppers were kept as family pets and it was believed they embodied the personalities of deceased family members. Keeping the reincarnated souls in the form of grasshoppers insured prosperity amongst the living family members. I wonder if there is a soul encased in this brass shell… check it out at Suite 22 Antiques.

"Second hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack."

Bright, sunshiny oil can.
Vintage eagle oil can dispenser. Awesome piece I found in a barn at a local estate sale. There were a few on display along the wall and they were all painted pretty bright colors. This one is a gorgeous sunny yellow! The top screws off with ease revealing an oily residue left behind. The outside is clean and free from any oil. There are a few places where the yellow paint has chipped off. Great display piece! This is a thumb pumper can so when you push the bottom it makes that classic oil can sound. Marked “Eagle” and “Made in USA” around the rim.

Legend has it that if you stand in a clearing in the middle of a forest with a bowl of honey placed at your feet and then ring this bell 3 times… a unicorn will appear.
