Stunning Fish , Lalique? Carp
« on: March 20, 2008, 04:21:17 PM »
I know its a bit busy here, just got some super new bits, sorry im gonna make it a bit busier,
but i guarantee you will all love :love: most of it!

Here is a little fishy, the only thing wrong with him is it should have Lalique on it ,
but its not signed!

Any ideas?
Do fish go in the Zoo ? Is there an Aquarium ;D

I've got that same beast in orange with nibbled fins and it took me 15 years asking around before I gave up. I gave up. No ID coming 4ward....

Aquarium for sure, we even have a cage for the human animal :mus: , had to introduce that after the figural bottles got emptied... a safe for jewellery and a garden for food and plants. It has become a rest home for all figural glass.

Expecting a burst of population growth in the next week...

Desna sounds good, ive just googled and wow :o  some of their quite recent stuff is fantastic.
Ivo, did you rule out Desna?
Frank, are photos ok for the Zoo? need any more?
Im sure this is 1920s/30s, its got a couple of small chips to the base, nothing big enough to
remove a r lalique mark tho!
Maybe its a part of something larger? maybe its had a bit of repair to the base? and lost signature?

Ivo, have you still got piccie of your Orange one?

Cheers,
Andy

(ps im a fisherman, and its the nicest carp ive seen , i had its brother/sister in a tank a few years ago)

I don't think of Desna much, here is the goldfish with diamond eyes.

Aha!  I did wonder if there had once been something in the eyes of Andy's fish!  I wondered from his picture if it might have been some sort of gilding.  Now I see Ivo's fish I understand! 

I presume they aren't really 'diamonds', Ivo?  ;)
