The fish has an internal compartment with a hinged door- see photos- inside which there is a small candleholder. St.Pierre or Peter's Fish, also known in England and America as 'John Dory', is one of the staple ingredients of 'Bouillabaisse' the famous fish stew of the French mediterranean coast. Dating from between 1925-1950, the metal scuplture measures 25 inches long x 19 high.
