I wonder if anybody here can help me please.
I have opalique fish which is about 2 inches high and
is signed on the bottom Joblings Opalique.
I have search the web and cannot find any info on it.
Any more info would be much appreciated.

Thankyou  :roll:

It sounds like Jobling's  no. 10100 "Fish" - an "Opalique Novelty" which was described as being 2" high. The original cost (as shown in Baker & Crowe's "Jobling's 1930s Glass") was 2/-.

The item was registered in 1933 (Reg Design No. 788542) and the original plaster model is thought to have been designed by Etienne Franckhauser (a famed mould maker of the era who also worked for Lalique).

What a wonderful item to have :-)


Thankyou so much Glen, you are a font of wisdom :lol:

Do you think it is worth much today, not that I will every get rid of it as it was gien to me by my grandmother.

Thankyou once again.


Is it worth much?

In monetary terms, I would think it is worth quite a bit, Forgive me for not being able to put a value range on it, but that is not my area of expertise.

In the wider aspects of value, I would say it is worth so much more. It's a family heirloom, it's a rare piece of beautiful English glass that is "signed" and the icing on the cake is that it is (I am sure) absolutely beautiful to look at. IMHO it's approaching "priceless".

You're very lucky, Isabella.



Hi thankyou for your welcome.
I hope this is ok.
