      Very ancient looking fish brooch you have, and my favorite upload of yours this week, I love it, it definitely makes me think of those Grecian fish you see on fountains, with or without a water spout coming from their mouth. The little scale details are lovely too, like tiny scales already on his scales! :P

      Thank you so much for the love

      Scott thank you for your super comment and agree this is a pretty amazing fish, it has quite an antique look that could almost be a carving. Very lucky to find this as nice Les Bernard figurals are hard to come by

      Thanks Lauren for your wonderful praise and insight, this fish most definitely has an ancient look and I too can picture it spouting water from a stone fountain! I'm so happy you found this fish to be my best upload, the design with the marcasite & rhinestones is really unique and adds to the Grecian type appearance

      Thank you FreshAir for your always kind comment and yes, it was very cool to find this fish in that book which is one of my favorites

      Phil thank you so much for your delightful comment and thinking this fish has beauty and personality, perhaps it's that bright red eye which appears to have eyelashes that gives this fish a happy gregarious look :)

      What an absolutely delightful fish, leaping out of the water, smiling, glistening, proud she is so beautiful!

      Thanks clockerman & Karen for loving this antique style fish, always most gratefully appreciated!

      Karen thank you so much for the wonderful compliments, I think this fish does have a lot of good points, esp that blend of marcasite silver & golden rhinestones on its scales, how cool is that
