It is difficult to put a price on an item this unique and rare. You will likely never see another. I have searched extensively for a similar example and have found ZERO history of one ever coming to market. The fish was designed specifically for this turquoise bear which indicates either a collaboration between silversmith and stone carver or a multitalented craftsman. The fish chemically tests as silver and is incredibly detailed.

The presentation side of the fish was somehow finished in a way that prevents oxidation. The object is small but has everything going for it.

Absolutely gorgeous piece of solid and colorful hand carved turquoise with a salmon crafted by a master silversmith. Object measures 1" tall by 2" wide by 3 long. Heavier than it looks at 3 ounces.
