We have a ton of brass... pitchers and stuff. What can you do with brass? Is it worth anything at all?

Sorry I put this in the wrong section... I don't know how to move it.

I don't know where you are located but, if you are talking about scrap, I sold some yellow brass this past August from cleaning up my west Texas farm and I believe I received $2.05 per pound. Right now I'm sitting on the copper and brass I have left. Along with gold and silver, it too is going up.

Metal prices can vary by the hour so you should call your local scrap dealer and ask them.

Probably the brass ware is worth more for what it is to someone who wants it to use than it is for scrap, but, yeah, for example worn-out brass sprinkler heads are worth *something* - it's not like a precious metal but you can get some petty cash out of it by selling for scrap.

It's just kind of ugly (in our opinion) and heavy and big... we inherited it. It was collected overseas in Asia and the Middle East. Now it's just kind of taking up room in the garage, and we don't know what to do with it.

You know, it may be just junk or it may not - I would at the very least show it to a local antique shop.

I am starting to seriously doubt that it's just scrap brass. If you really hate it you may want to sell it on consignment - although you might want to consider keeping it as a momento of who-ever you inherited it from...

Pieces that are made of brass are very often worth a great deal more than their scrap value. A brass bed, for example, is a very expensive item if it is old. Take a few pieces to an antique appraiser, they'll give you a ballpark estimate, and probably offer to buy it from you.

It may be worth more as an antique than scrap.
