"cheap" fish
« on: January 31, 2014, 09:56:51 PM »
Okay, these suckers are in constant supply, and are a dime a dozen.

I assume they are mid century Chinese.

One has a tallish brightly colored "solid" interior with the fish swimming around, the other has a flattish more diffuse base interior with the fish above.

Were there ever any Murano pieces that these Chinese pieces were based on?

I thunk they are 21st Chinese. There are Murano fish weights but they are nothing like these

I don't know how they got themselves to the States, but their entry into the UK has been mostly through the charity shops run by the British Heart Foundation as "new goods".
