Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, typically around 70% copper and 30% zinc. Rose brass, or red brass, has a higher copper content (about 90%), giving it a copper like colour, but the hardness of brass. Copper by itself is too soft a metal to use as a shoe horn.
The pitting and irregularities are from when it was cast, and show its age.
