This fabulous FISH is unusually large and well detailed, with good scale work and excellent SPRING HINGED face. The eyes are PEARLS with GOLD MOUNTS. The TAIL FIN has 3 sets of marks (see pic). I would say the marks are probably Dutch and the fish is made c.The fish measures an impressive 14 INCH (over 35cm) long and WEIGHS approx 13 TROY OUNCES (404 GRAMS). I HAVE SEEN A FEW LARGE ARTICULATED FISH BEFORE, MOST ARE MODERNISH. THIS IS A RARE LARGE 19TH CENTURY EXAMPLE. CONDITION : GOOD USED CONDITION WITH ORIGINAL SOLDER JOINS ON ALL FINS AND TAIL.
