NOVELTY ARTICULATED FISH MADE IN SOLID SILVER, HIDING A LIGHTER – HANAU (GERMANY)
Highly collectable solid silver articulated fish, with a hinge at the bottom of its head so it can be opened to reveal a lighter hidden inside.
This novelty piece is not marked, although its style and type are typical of Hanau (Germany), and I am quite certain about the attribution.
22.7cm (length) x 9.5cm (height) x 6.2cm (width)
Excellent condition, with no damages or restorations, and just a small bending of a small part of the top fin. The holes shown in the two last pictures probably correspond to pins that helped the movement of the fish. Nevertheless, the item can be moved freely without fear for its integrity or condition. It is solid, and in a great condition. Please, see the attached pictures for a better illustration of its condition.
