Hand painted cobalt base with gilt overlay. Marked with gold embossed button "Crown Derby, English Bone China" with numbers enameled in red although covered by button.
These porcelains are of very fine quality and the colors used in the Imari designs add to the beauty of this gorgeous figurine. The figurine is in excellent condition with what appears to be a touch-up on the top fin that may have been a tiny nick in the porcelain with red enameling two red dots over the area (see photos). It looks like the figure left the factory this way. Measures 4 1/2" high, 7" long and 2 1/8 wide.
