Product Description

A fun set of ten hand made foam fish…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of these fish, we believe they would date to the latter part of the 20th century.  These are so cool and would be great for a prop or even for the kids room for a display piece. All ten fish are individually made in foam, then skillfully hand painted to depict several species of fish. The craftsmanship is quite brilliant, with the ‘delicately placed and decorated tails and fins’ complementing the overall finish

Although the fish are delicate and light weight, they all sit on painted wooden blocks and are perched on long nails. The roof of the nail has been pushed inside the bottom of each fish, so although they are all perched, they can be very easily removed too…

We are offering the school of fish in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and scars to the fish in places and some small areas of paint chipping. Structurally the fish are all good, with a few ‘knicks’ and some tatty areas here and there. Notably, the large Yellow fish has one eye missing, which could be easily replaced. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
