This pair of fancy fish for the wall has a shabby matte black finish, currently.

Each one is about 8" by 8" (we're on the road, and forgot to measure them before we left, sorry) and each has a whimsical, cartoon-like novelty appearance.

Originally, these were made for and most generally used for mid century bathroom wall decor; in the 80s many fish like this ventured out into kitschy themed nightclubs, home lounges, kid's rooms, and even garden sheds.

We've seen nearly the exact same design attributed to MIller, who made both ceramic and metal wall hangings; these are not marked, nor dated, which often times Miller did. Because of their popularity, these were made by other manufacturers, eventually, as well.

Personally, we love these fanciful fish painted in bright colors (or even cool pastels) and glossy finishes, which most likely is what they were, originally; we're pretty sure this finish was applied at a later date.

Fun fish. Lots of potential here. oh, and again, price is for the pair.
