Nicely engraved silver plated bronze fish ashtray. This piece has silver plating with a great shiny patina with dark highlights on the up side. This was manufactured by the Jennings Brothers Foundry company (See the company information below). The figurines made by this company have gained quite a following over the years as they serve well as a pipe or cigar holder given the weight of the piece. It is marked "JB 472" on the bottom. This is in great condition with no breaks, cracks or chips.

The Jennings Bros. MFG. Co. JB Copyrighted. The Jennings Brothers operated their foundry in Bridgeport Connecticut from 1891-1950s. They produced art metal pieces such as reproduction statues, bookends, and candlesticks. These pieces were not mass produced but required the work by expert artists and metal craftsman. The Jennings Brothers pieces are made of cast white metal or spelter, not bronze. Later the Philadelphia Manufacturing Company purchased the Jennings Brothers molds in the 1960's.
