This Schmidt Rhea Glass unique swimming fish sculpture was part of a limited edition series (approximately 6 were created) in their line of glass fish. Michael Schmidt, the artist who created this unusual fish sculpture, was inspired by watching fish jumping in and out of water while being on vacation on the Hawaiian Islands.
This Schmidt Rhea fish is in perfect condition. It measures 4 7/8" H x 3 7/8" wide. The interior color (the fish) is made from a glass furnace bead made by this studio and is a rich purple with thin light gray/black stripes. No molds were used. Any bubbles created in making this fish is part of the process.
For collectors or lovers of glass fish....this would make a unique addition to your collection. This piece is signed and dated 1989.
