I don't think I would have guessed correctly Chris,  so you can forgive Michelle!!

I don't collect fishy things (I know this is a mammal!!) so am a bit ignorant on the 'nautical' front!
The closest I've got to fish is an octopus, because it had Turnmill signature on the base, and I knew a little of the history of that studio.

Here is my original thread about it
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,34299.msg185633.html#msg185633
Pretty sure mine is dated 1969 which would mean a different turnmill to Adam A's studio

Yes, I think it does Michelle,  but the Turnmill ellie I have is engraved rather than acid etched.......

Spoilt me quiz and to top it all you hijack my thread  :cry: You are spot on of course but then I did know what it was because this too is marked on the base ;D
Only joking Michelle, maybe I should have been more specific but Rosie knew what I meant.

Just to cheer you up Chris,  When I read out 'Who made this glass whale?'  John said,  'Whoever stamped on his tail made him wail!!'  :24:
