Salviati Fish
 
This masterful fish has a Salviati label on bottom. If you enlarge the fish, you'll see the twist of the tail that is found in many of the Salviati fish. The fish is 11 5/8" (29.5 cm) tall. Photos are courtesy of Ken Dale.

Seguso Dalla Fish Astray
 
 
These ashtrays, along with the matching lighter, are often sold as Cenedese or Barbini. The ashtray on top is 6.5" wide and has a Seguso Dalla label. The ashtray and lighter on bottom do not have labels, but have the same type fish and seaweed, so are probably SDV. Photos of the square ashtray and lighter are courtesy of Jerry Schultrich.

Fratelli Toso Fish
 
  
The form of this fish is very typical of Fratelli Toso. Some of the fish have lips that stick out more. The form comes in many colors and decorations, some with a satin finish and others with a glossy finish. The shape of the tail can vary from fish to fish.
