The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source.

Every new Hogwarts student had to be equipped with a set of Brass scales, which they could purchase at Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment. The goblins of Gringotts Wizarding Bank weighed coins in brass scales.
One could also buy collapsible brass telescopes at Wiseacre's. Brass Cauldrons were sold at Potage's Cauldron Shop, in Diagon Alley, for a price of twenty-five Galleons. The junk shop sold "lopsided brass scales" as well.
The doorknob of Moaning Myrtle's bathroom was made of brass, as was the griffin-shaped knocker on the door to the Headmaster's office, and the plaque saying "Sybill Trelawney, Divination teacher" outside the circular trapdoor leading to the Divination Classroom at Hogwarts Castle.
On the Hogwarts kitchens, mounds of glittering brass pots and pans are kept heaped around the stone walls. Rubeus Hagrid owned brass pots, which he kept hanging from the ceiling of his Rubeus Hagrid's cabin.
In the 1995–1996 school year, when the Dumbledore's Army started using the Room of Requirement as a safe place in which to practise defensive magic, the door to the room materialised as a highly polished door with a brass handle.
At St Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, at the entrance to the "Dangerous" Dai Llewellyn Ward, there was a brass holder with a card identifying the Healer-in-Charge (Hippocrates Smethwyck) and the Trainee Healer (Augustus Pye).
During her lifetime, Hepzibah Smith kept many flourishing potted plants in brass containers all over her sitting room, which was noted to look like a cross between a magical antique shop and a conservatory.
