Small decorative shelf brackets?

I feel like this shouldn't be an issue to locate, but in yet another installment of "please help the dummy" I'm asking if anyone knows (or can find**) a source for shelf brackets or corner braces that are 1) small, like 2 or 3 inches, and 2) aesthetically nice or at least not the ugly utilitarian versions I see at the hardware store.

I'm not asking for curlicues or other ornamentatal frills, but there's gotta be something out there that looks a little nicer that the steel versions like these:

Prime-Line MP11351-4 Corner Bracket, 1-Inch, Steel Construction, Galvanized Finish, L-Angle, Pack of 4, 4 Piece

** yep, this is a "Let me google that for you" moment
I can haz sig line?

Brackets for hanging plants are often nicer. You're in luck they are putting that stuff out in the garden centers. You may have to drill holes on the upper arm.

How about some concealed shelf brackets that you can't see at all:

Home Depot has plenty of them. Wood with scalloped edges, fancy metal, even ones made from pipe fittings that you could buy for half the cost in the plumbing aisle.
