P-417 is not a brass casting number. I have been trying to research this old company for days with little real information. But the P417 stamp is used on many Hakuli pieces... along with variations of that number, like P714, and etc. I have discovered that cleaning the piece would be a mistake. These were not to be all polished brass. The artists at Hakuli applied a chemical to the body of these that reacted with the brass turning it an antique green, it's like an enamel. It seems the head, feet, and bottle opener were left raw brass. That's all the information I have.
