Condition: Very Good, shows well with limited wear to the sterling silver plate and ready for another 50 years of giving joy of ownership. The metal has been given to a coating of a museum sold grade wax, similar to Renaissance Wax and wiped. It helps to protect the item prior to sale. Always care should be addressed whenever cleaning. Never use paper towels or metal cleaners, including cleaning wax like that used for automobile finishes. Do use and lightly so, a clean cloth whenever removing dirt and hand oils. And never worry that this fish will lose its appeal, since it should be possible to restore to like new, should another 50 years require it.

Country: Mexico likely though unknown.
