Most likely this was carved in the late 1960's or early 1970's and is made of thick heavy plank wood possibly reclaimed from an old schooner. The piece was acquired from a wealthy estate overlooking the Mystic River in CT. The fish resembles a salmon or a rainbow trout. AMAZING one of a kind showpiece, it could be the focal point of your home, restaurant, or business. It is extremely heavy and has heavy duty ropes strung through to hang from a ceiling.
I would estimate this piece weighs around 250 pounds. The fish will need a few touch ups here and there.It would make an excellent addition to any collection. Please contact me about any questions regarding relocating the fish. Please see photos for item condition and description.
