Description: Fish are one of the forms that many Canton collectors have in their collections. Of course, they are not in the Canton pattern and we are not even sure they are Chinese. Many people think they are Japanese. Even their use is in question. Were they sauce and condiment dishes or for fish bones. One theory is that they were for chop sticks, the stick's ends were placed inside and the V tails held the rest of the sticks. 

This dish for sale is 5" long. It is very attractive. The scales of the fish are molded on the top sides and especially on the bottom side. They are fairly common.     #1924
