This is a Beautiful Articulated Fish Bottle Opener made out of Abalone Shell with its Original Heavy Link Chain. This one is not signed but the Castillo Family was known for making these as souvenirs from Mexico. I don't suggest using this as a bottle opener because of its fragile nature.
The Fish has 5 sections and measures about 3" x 1. There is a small chip to the abalone in the tail section, otherwise Very Nice. The Heavy Link Chain is 27" long. I believe it is Silver Plate , as the large ring that the Chain goes through and the spring ring catch have worn finish. The Chain has a very nice silver finish. I have not had the fish tested for Silver.
