Made in India, according to both common sense and a relatively well-preserved stamp, still visible on the back of the largest one, I thought they'd work well on either an otherwise empty wall, or above my desk where a load of other things are already hanging. I haven't decided yet.
Gold-toned things have made a comeback in recent years. It's a welcome change after years upon years of endless silver, platinum, nickel and the like. For one thing, my colouring makes gold jewelery much more flattering on me than silver. For another, I prefer gold's warmth. Not everywhere, but I don't see why it was thought to be so awful for so long. Probably because of all that hideous gold and brass you used to see in the 80s. Bathrooms decked out in shining gold accents with miles of black marble all around. My ex's family had just such a bathroom. Complete with a black sink and toilet. In addition to being freezing cold, there was something endlessly disgusting about that black toilet ... anyway.
