Four Kangaroo Figurines

c1900-1920s. Brass, pewter, and tin figurines, “Made in Australia” stamp impressed into brass kangaroo base, sizes range from 5.5 x 8 x 1.8cm to 16 x 11 x 6cm. Slight rust and paint loss to pewter and tin kangaroos, one tin kangaroo with missing ear and loose card holder.

The pair of tin kangaroos were intended for use as place card holders.

The brass kangaroo was possibly styled after the 1772 engraving by George Stubbs, the first depiction of an Australian animal in Western art. It may have been used as a car mascot, due to a threaded hole to base. Provenance: David Ell collection.
