Ivo, on the base at the front of the fish is what looks like some kind of faded lettering, or is that just surface wear?.

Thanks Mosquito - that is a most surprising outcome. I've not come across Ferjac pieces before - but I'm delighted that it is.

Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 1914)

Hi, Pamela.

They're fish that look perfectly ordinary until they're alarmed, when they puff themselves up until they're almost spherical - see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puffer_fish. I lived in Egypt for a while and used to go diving in the Red Sea and used to see them there sometimes - extremely cute.

and the Japanese fugu is one type apparently...

Quote
http://www.lonelyplanet.com/theme/food/food_fugu.htm

The fugu fish - sometimes known as the puffer fish, globefish or, in simple fishing parlance, the 'blowie' - has over 100 different types worldwide, and they're all as poisonous as hell. For instance, the fugu rubripes (the species most served up as dinner fare) is 1250 times more deadly than cyanide, and the toxin found in an average fugu fish can kill up to 30 adults.
