A very fine fish, useful and easy on the eyes. He dates to the 19th century. He opens in the middle, his head end pulling off so you can store your sewing needles, or whatever else you choose, inside.

This little fish fellow shows impressive detail. His body is carved to look like scales and he has inscribed eyes and mouth. 4 1/2" long and in wonderful condition.
