    Never did figure this out. Standing up Fish with swirly glass base. About 12 inches tall. The bottom is hollow, and looks like it *might* have sat on top of something else at one time, as there are some nicks on the *inside* edge when one would expect there to be IF being remove/put back on top of something else and you ding the edges..... *maybe* this was part of a feature of something like a fountain. Deano Fish post inspired me to post this Unknown Piece. I do not think it is Murano ( I could be wrong) as it looks Nice......

    He is pretty -- but he Did get away......LOL. Thanks

    ==================================

    [Question:] Why does CW always re-categorize Fish to Animals?? FISH are not animals, they are mammals.......?? Plus Fish/mammals is not listed under the animals Sub Category...? Maybe it can be added ???

    Unsolved Mystery

      It's a fine looking fish in any case. Did you insert matching borders for your photos?, cuz they look fabulous! I looked at the base shot, which is not as good as looking at the base in person. It could be that they had a bad pontil connection, and when it broke out, they had to do a lot of grinding to get it cleaned up. I can't imagine what this might have been a part of previously. The base part is very nice and looks like it belongs with the fish, but not neccesarily with something else. Just my 2 cents.

      darling this is fabulous , and beautiful , heres a tip darling just take the phone out of the posting. it doesn't need to be in there, :)
    3. antiquerose antiquerose, 5 years ago
      LOL....I use the phone to give a size comparison....as the phone is about 6 inches tall. Comparison can make the world of difference when it comes to the visual description (with our eyes) as to what we see, or think we see....LOL
    4. SEAN68 SEAN68, 5 years ago
      darling use a "DECORATIVE ITEM" to use for size and to go with the post of the same or goes with the era!! the phone hhhhhhhhhhmmmmmmmm , I don't know , not right. just a tip. LOL!!
    5. SEAN68 SEAN68, 5 years ago
      Like I do in my postings :) ill give you an example.............

      Gotcha Sean.....Just when you put a decorative item in a pic, I have No idea how Big that decorative item is. Most people kinda know the size of cordless phone. I prefer to use something people can relate to for size as a relatively well known item We See Everyday....(eg), an apple, a can of pop....etc......a cordless phone

      So I use a cordless phone. It is just more straight and stands well. I guess each to their own.........no problem
    7. SEAN68 SEAN68, 5 years ago
      Your very welcome honey!!
    8. SEAN68 SEAN68, 5 years ago
      that when you type in the size of the item that your posting.............
    9. antiquerose antiquerose, 5 years ago
      LOL....your right, but some people still can't think how big 12 inches is for like this Fish. No problems......

      ~ I think the MIND and the EYES sometimes do not figure things out when it comes to words for Sized..........as Visual height sometimes helps more description.

      One time I bought something on-line and it looked so big due to the close beautiful pics. I read the description, but my eyes and Brain thought/saw differently. When I got it -- I loved it -- but it was half the size I thought it was, even after reading all the Description.

      ~ ~ So I guess moral of the story is "Live and Learn".......LOL....and I just found out the hard way.

      ;-)

      Rose this might (might) be Japanese - Marti Glass did some similar.

      Now girl, you listen to Sean, our very own style king! The phone is too ordinary and ugly for your wonderful things! Try a Lego man or something we all know!
      (NB. I'm full of good advice, just don't do it myself....)
    11. Deano Deano, 5 years ago
      I like your idea Karen. Of course, you get more respect here than I do. lol.
    12. SEAN68 SEAN68, 5 years ago
      Antiquerose , your fine !! Lol no worries here just suggesting:) but your pics are great and postings are wonderful vas well;)
    13. SEAN68 SEAN68, 5 years ago
      Thankyou Karen!! :)

      I love this guy Rosie!! I've never seen such an elaborate base on this type of piece! I don't know about it being Murano, but the quality is undoubtedly on a par with theirs!
    15. Rick55 Rick55, 5 years ago
      BTW... I get it with the phone... I've seen coke cans, apples and beer bottles, always something that any of us can relate to for a size comparison. Maybe a ruler next time... lol!

      @RICK55 -- Thanks for the comments!! Yes kinda different. Have not ran across anything like it. I think KAREN may have a lead as Japanese Art Glass. Also yeah -- I like to put something the *same* in my pics as people then kinda get to know ( like a ruler) the size -- as we can relate to a known identifiable item. I have used a Ruler in my Rosenthat Large Vase post.....LOL
