Is this kissing fishes vase Chinese?
« on: March 23, 2006, 09:59:23 AM »
It's got a lot of red in, so I thought it must be Chinese, and I was duped into thinking it was an Italian second, because the fishes aren't exactly in alignment with each other. It's white glass inside.

Women and cats will do as they please,
and men and dogs should get used to the  idea.

I have to say I agree with Frank! :D  And if this is Chinese, I wish I knew exactly who was making them! :shock: :?  It seems so discourteous to dismiss a craftperson's work under such a blanket description       :? :roll:
