Glass Fish Paperweight gold inlay signed OG 08

Post by RVsaid on February 21st 2015, 8:22 am

Hi

I unpacked this yesterday after a move and thought why on earth do I have such a chintzy piece. I was looking it over and noticed the pleasing use of colours behind the gold (goldfish). There's reds, orange, green and blues and it really looks like a flash of a fish swimming away. Signed to edge of base with what looks to be OG 08 (2008). Approx 5.5 inches long and 4 inches high with ridges in the tail fin on one side only. The gold fragmented finish is almost silver in places and a certain light. Even if it is a tourist piece this one has come out rather well Clap

Don't know who made it but I would suspect the gold is actually silver foil, and just appears gold under the amber glass
