The large fish measures a full 15 inches long by 5 inches wide, and is about 3 inches high. His smaller nesting partner measures 9-1/2 inches long by 3-1/4 inches wide and is 2-1/2 inches high. These are meant to be seen!
They look great nested together -- or in separate places. Their wood is a rich, lustrous dark brown -- almost black -- nicely-grained wood. Their scales and gills and fins are nicely carved and accented with a rubbed-on seafoam green paint, which accents the darkness of the wood. Both fish have inset clear-and-black "fish eyes", very glossy and nice.
Being handmade and vintage, these have variations in the wood grain, changes within the colors, and the expected small scrapes and dings. No attempt has been made to alter the vintage and rustic character of these beautiful hand-carved fish.
