Big Fish, Millersburg   Updated 12/4/2014   More

Big Fish is very similar to Millersburg's Trout and Fly, but without the fly. That's the obvious difference, but a close study of the patterns shows that while the fish are similar, there are differences in the shape and detail. The foliage, while similar and appearing in about the same density, is different in detail. This means that each pattern was made from a different mold. The amethyst Big Fish on the left is the shape as it came out of the mold. It would have been shaped like this before being reheated and then made into other shapes such as the oval and crimped like bowl on the right. Both pieces were photographed while in private collections. To see several rare examples of this pattern, click here.
