An interesting piece based on a neo-classical design that is depicted in various forms. I believe the fish like figure is supposed to represent a Dolphin, the boy is sometimes depicted as a Cherub with the musical instrument often replaced with a fishing rod etc. Surprisingly there is no makers mark or hallmarks. The base is 7.2cms square and slightly uneven, the overall height is 10.5cms & weighs 235 grams. It appears that a small piece is missing from the middle of the instrument, otherwise nice condition, just needs a light polish. Exact age & origin is unknown.
