Until 1929 the Kinco catalogues included their items made as usual with etched hard brass and with small cast animals, some of which were mythically inspired.  For economy, the castings were not highly accurate but did look very effective.  When the range was restricted for 1930 and later, many of the animals were no longer included.



Three photo frames of similar design with supportive monkeys.












These small dishes above were available with or without the glass liner.  The supporting sphinxes had noses of minimal size.















An ashtray assembled with a rest, circular tray and decorative monkey on an oak base.

Matchbox holders made of a simple bent strip of brass with a decorative animal soldered in place to help stabilise it.
