Brass is a yellow alloy made of copper and zinc. It is often used for ornamentation due to its malleability and color similar to gold.


Brass can be used for masks,[1] gongs,[2] medallions,[3] and bells.[4] It can also be used as a link in a maester's chain,[5] and to make Myrish eyes.[6][7]


Grand Maester Pycelle has a brass link in his chain.[5]

While Daenerys Targaryen visits the port of Qarth to seek passage west, she meets a brass-seller who tries to sell her a large polished platter of brass. However, she refuses due to its unreasonably high price (thirty honors). While the merchant persists and negotiates a lower price with Daenerys, Ser Jorah Mormont warns her that two strangers have been following them. They use their reflection in the metal to observe the fat brown man and the old man. In the end, Daenerys buys the platter for two honors but she is attacked by a Sorrowful Man before she can leave the brass-seller. The old man saves her, and in the confusion Jorah slams the platter on the fat brown man's head which leaves the metal dented.[10]
