      What an unusual fish brooch! I love the design and the enamel rhinestones are beautiful. Very nice piece! :)

      There is some nice personality this fish has as if wondrous at the new world he has just discovered, very nice piece !~

      What an amazing fish brooch!! I love everything about it. I've always wanted to add a cast iron fish doorstop to my collection, but they're way out of my budget!

      Very odd but nice fish this week Jenni, and my favorite of your uploads this week. ^^
      He's like one of those ancient dolphin creatures that you see put on Grecian style fountains, but the horizontal tail is unique, and of course the one fin is a well thought out detail. :)

      Thank you also for your delightful comments

      DejaVu, isn't it a most unusual fish design, yet it is a vintage classic because Jomaz also did this design. It's got that undulating freshwater fish look

      Phil he is definitely wide eyed and taking it all in, reminds me of the koi fish in a mall grotto that used to come right up to people expecting to be fed

      Scott I'm so glad you loved this fish, and I know for sure one day you will be adding a cast iron fish doorstop to your awesome collection & am looking forward to it

      Lauren you are on target here, this fish's eyes & pouty lips could certainly be on a dolphin fountain, I've seen one as a stone sculpture on the outer rim of a pool in a Hawaiian hotel & it spouted a stream of water, great call! And of course I'm really happy this was a favorite upload of mine in this group, thank you!
