This small articulated fish is made of white metal and abalone shell. Its mouth is gaping and we think you might be able to open beer type bottles with it; however as such beverages never pass our lips we are not in a position to test this out.
We have it on good authority that it was given to a sweet young lady in the 1960s by an aged high court judge in the hope that she would smile on his amorous ambitions rather than at them. His high-courting hopes came to naught and the aforementioned young lady did not return the fish.
The Moral: if you aspire to win the favours of a nubile and innocent young woman, a bunch of flowers is generally smiled upon – small fish are not.
Cod-ition good although the odd bit of shell is missing from the tail… Length 3 inches
