This fish is so much fun in brilliant Blue, Black and White. I love the way the tail flips up over his head. The enamel technique is called Basse-Taille which has low relief metal work which is then filled with translucent enamel. The work on this piece has a lovely mixture of stripes, circles and elongated triangles. It is mostly a rich Cobalt Blue with Black and White stripes at the face and base of the tail. Most of the tail is a lovely Ice Blue with Cobalt Blue at the tip. Scales of White and Ice Blue are on the body and Black and White bubbles accent the tail. This is marked D-A NORWAY and STERLING 925S on the back.
SIZE & CONDITION: This is 1 3/4" high and wide and is in Excellent condition.
