Royal Copley (6") Fish Vases or Planters
Perhaps no other piece of Spaulding or Royal Copley sits at opposite ends of the scale in terms of collectability. The yellow version shown here from the webmaster collection is readily available in antique and vintage stores, flea markets and online sites. lovely example of Spaulding design. The yellow specimens regularly sell for as little as $10.
Then there is the grey one. There is no more rare piece, than perhaps the rooster lamps or a one off experimental items. I have talked with collectors who have extensive collections with lamps and every rare piece one could imagine, and the response is almost always the same......" we cant find that darn grey fish....!".
Some day I would like someone to explain to us why this one was made in such limited quantities.Yellow Fish Planter $10 ^ webmaster Collection
Gray Fish Planter $250 and up.
