You are looking at a really nice vintage Noritake goldfish figurine. I believe this piece was produced in 1946. The color is a gorgeous deep red-orange, with white markings on the tail and fins and a bit of white on the body. The orange is glossy and the white is matte with a sheen to it. The eyes are a deep gold color with black pupils. The scales and the ribbing on fins and tail are well defined. It measures 3 1/4″ high to the top of the dorsal fin and the length is about 6″ from mouth to tail tip. Width is 3 3/4 at the widest point of the tail. This piece is absolutely mint. There are NO breaks, chips or repairs and I do not see any factory flaws. The underside of the tail has the Noritake stamp which reads “Noritake Bone China” and “Nippon Toki Japan”. There is also a silver metallic label with black lettering that reads “Noritake Bone China”. It will be a very nice addition to your collection. If the cost is higher, I will cover the difference. You can be sure your item will reach you safely. Careful packing is included at no extra charge. Much of my packing material is recycled but I make sure that it is clean. There are pets in my home, but it is a smoke-free household. Check out my feedback and you will see that it is excellent. I describe all items to the best of my ability.
