(I accidentally flipped the primary image--the fish faces left!) This large 3 & 1/4" by 1 & 3/4" by 1/4" hand crafted glass and brass denizen of the deep was made in France in the lamp work technique referred to as gripoix after Madame Gripoix of the same time period. I don't believe she marked any pieces in her name--I could be wrong--but this is definitely a fine example of gripoix. The fish tale is wavy and its body is covered with glass "cabochon" like scales in transparent and opaque glass. It is marked Made in France and has no damage that I could find with a 20x loupe. (Even if it did, it is so rare, I would not price it any differently.) It is outstanding.
