Rare Art Deco Antique Silver Articulated Fish from Spain
This is a rare silver fish, intricately hand-etched with a flexible moving tail and small red glass eyes. The fish displays stunning silver work on every etched scale and with its sinuous line-work that make it look very real. The fish displays some Art Deco elements both on its stylized fins to its face. On the face of the fish we can see abstract angular motifs mixed in with a flower, which surrounds the red glass eye. It is uncanny in its movements, as it moves in wave like forms when held in your hand; in the palm of your hand the fish feels and weighs very real. On one of the lower fins you can see the hallmark of a Pentagram that is a Spanish quality mark indicating a minimum of .915 Silver purity. Also next to it is a makers mark. The fish is made of 915 Spanish Silver and weighs 2.6 troy oz. It measures 7 inches long and to the top of its fin, 2 1/2 inches high. The red glass bead eyes are 1/4 inch round. This rare fish dates to the 1930s and is in great condition. Its a spectacular and unique addition to a silver collection.
