Wow, nice fish.

Wild stab in the dark: something is saying circa 1910 and Bohemian to me. Probably forgot to take my medication.

I think it's probably murano. There's another - on ebay, completed listing, titled "Large Vintage Murano Glass Crackle Glaze Colour Finish Hollow Fish" - with murano type coloured glass in the body.

Looks more Eastern/Northern European to me - Czech, German, Swedish - possibly even British (Nazeing and Walsh Walsh made items along these lines).

The "Large Vintage Murano Glass Crackle Glaze Colour Finish Hollow Fish" on eBay looks contemporary (1980s+) Chinese, and the 'crackle glaze' is 100% cracks through poor annealing.

Thank you for the suggestions though I cannot find the one you mention listed on eBay?
Pretty confident it's a quality item without a positive ID that's destined for the 'one bid' £9.99 section on eBay Shocked

Seems Naomi was closer than anyone else.

Although the fish is in a very definite Bohemian/Germanic style, these were produced in the 1960s/70s in Murano. Was just looking through my reference images and spotted one bearing a "Vetro Artistico Veneziano - Made In Murano" label (seems to have been an exporter rather than a manufacturer).
