Brass bird decoration, running grouse letter opener. This cast metal grpuse or pheasant is either a letter opener or a plant pot decoration as opposed to skewer or a geisha's hair decoration - I think. I could be wrong. I do think it would look pretty cool appearing in a pot with a burst of greenery, looking as if startled/flushed out of the bushes. This has a nice patina, I am not sure if the gold color is on top of something else, though. It does not appear to have been used in a planter, so maybe it is a letter opener after all. The bend/slant is meant to be there. It is marked "FRANCE" on the shaft with maybe one letter in front of that and one behind, I can't quite make it out. The metal shaft is about 9 inches long, pointed on the end, with the grouse being about 4 inches in length.
