Enameled Articulated Gold Fish that are really White and Aqua Koi fish!
with little cobalt blue eyes... and Coral colored Lipstick

Fish are jointed and move like a fish swimming through water.
Known as articulated.

Vermeil with Enameling in Aqua and White colors -
some people call this enameling style cloisonne
It is not a true cloisonne but reminds one of this art style.

the under part of fanned out tail is aqua
there is a bit of coral colored lipstick enamel on mouth
along with some more orangey/rust, a Coral color, on the bottom underneath side
the colors are very nice and compliment each other.

A golden soldered jump ring connects the Koi to the gold tone non tarnish ear wire / gold plate

length of fish - 1 1/2" approx
length of total dangle from top of ear wire to bottom of fan tail - 2 3/8" approx.

I hand pick each Koi and match them personally before putting together the Pair.
Each is checked for quality of craftsmanship... these are exquisite.
They have such character.
The Koi design of these fish is exactly like the ones I sold in my shop in the 1970s.

Koi Story -
i gathered this information from the internet and put it all together for our enjoyment::

Koi history goes back to Southern China as far as 20 million years ago. Dated by fossils found in the area. It is also said that King Shoko of Ro gave Confusius' son a koi fish at birth in 533 BC.
Goldfish and Koi are both selections of Carp - but from 2 different families... Goldfish are mutations from Crusian Carp and Koi are from the Common Carp.
In China (and Japan) the Koi represents a symbol of strength, courage and patience.
The reason for giving one to a child at birth... also good Luck.
Against all odds Koi fish can swim upstream when needed!

I have always loved the Deco Design of this Fish and hope you will too.
Thank you for browsing my Etsy Shop.
