This fish according to the sales information, is documented to Cenedese:

and is listed as Creator: Cenedese (workshop/studio)

The fish is remarkably similar to my fish.  What is most interesting and something I have found on another piece as well, is that my fish has a rough part under the mouth between the two fins.  I thought/wondered if it was where the pontil rod was removed (and it might be), but having seen this fish attached to glass 'stands' in a similar position on the fish, I'm now wondering if mine was originally attached to a 'stand' of some sort?
