Solid Brass Tabletop Accessories

Today, the authoritative medium of brass is chosen for works of art, both decorative and functional. The Jefferson Brass Company proudly presents its tabletop collection of gifts and home accents. Each is made to a specific weight, and our talented craftsmen create each one by hand. After the pieces are cast, they are meticulously hand polished to a brilliant sheen. At Jefferson Brass we urge you to look closely for the clues that these pieces are hand made. Because of the completely handcrafted workmanship of each piece, you may be able to discern very small inclusions, imperfections, and even slight size variations in the pieces. These are not considered flaws! Rather this is the key to the intrinsic value of something truly made by hand. Each will have its own individual character, and we ask hat you accept this as an inherent part of the manufacturing process. Uniqueness is thus guaranteed. These items may be ordered hand polished to insure that the brilliant luster of hand polished brass remains or lacquered with a clear seal to help prevent tarnishing. Our tabletop accessories will last forever and their heirloom quality serves as a reminder of the grace, technique and tradition of excellent craftsmanship that has been meticulously maintained for over 36 years. You will immediately recognize the difference in our brass pieces from other manufacturers because of their extraordinary weight. We believe our products are superior. They will sell themselves. Just pick one up. Feeling is believing!

The universal symbol for hospitality and welcome throughout America, and especially in Virginia for nearly 200 years, has been the pineapple. The design of our pineapple trivet and pineapple bookend/doorstop dates back to 1789 in South Carolina when it was struck by a plantation outside of Charleston to commemorate the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. When the great clipper ships and merchant vessels of colonial days returned from their voyages bearing exotic fruits from the West Indies, captains and sailors alike would display a pineapple over their door as a sign to friends of their return home safely and that visitors were welcome. It has evolved over the years into a wonderful symbol of gracious living. Truly, this is a ‘performing’ work of art.

Another example of American art/memorabilia is the Key to the Bastille. In 1790, the Marquis de Lafayette presented the Key to the Bastille to George Washington as a symbol of freedom. Today, the original "Key to the Fortress of Despotism" hangs in a glass case in the central hall of Mount Vernon, George Washington's plantation on the Potomac River. As an executive gift, paperweight or decorative accessory, this historical memento pays tribute to the ideals that have made our country great.

Religious Brass Accessories


Americans are a faithful people. And sharing this great faith brings multiple ceremonies throughout the year. Through these commemorations we honor important milestones in our lives. During great events like weddings, graduations, house warming parties, baptisms, baby showers, confirmations, and Bar Mitzvahs, we organize elaborate feasts, create festive decorations, and simply enjoy the company of family and close friends. As a society, we take great joy honoring these special times. They remind us to look beyond ourselves and think of others. Holidays such as Christmas, Chanukah, Passover and Kwanzaa all are celebrated through sharing gifts, food, and friendship.

At Jefferson Brass we’ve created unique, handcrafted gifts perfect for celebrating these memorable occasions. Every piece is special because it is not only decorative but also an exquisite piece of art. Through the sharing of devotion, gratitude, faith, commitment and the celebration of life, each piece in the Jefferson Brass collection of religious brass gifts and accessories serves as a wonderful reminder of what truly is important in our lives. Every item is hand-polished to a brilliant sheen. Based on the same sand casting and finishing methods established during Revolutionary times, each piece is made completely by hand to ensure it will last for years. It will surely be passed down through the generations as a quality heirloom treasure.

An everyday reminder of the Christian faith to be carried in a pocket or purse is the simple, elegant oversized pocket cross in solid brass. It is a quiet personal symbol of commitment and thanks for all of the Lord's blessings, and it comes with a lovely wallet size pocket cross prayer. Classic and fundamental in the Jewish faith is the Menorah with 9 candles. This simple stylized version of the well known design is heavily cast in solid brass and can be used as a hot plate/trivet. It is ideal as a decorative accessory in any living room, library or den. A spectacular piece! It makes a wonderful gift for holidays such as Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, Hanukkah, etc., and will last through the ages.
