Antique Dolphin or Koi Dragon Fish Candlesticks

 

IMG_5992Dolphins or Dragon Fish? A pair of beautifully detailed and antiqued cast heavy nickel fish candlesticks 15″ tall with scalloped top and base. But what are they? Japanese legend says that every year thousands of Koi, a courageous, strong, and dedicated fish, make a perilous and difficult journey up the Rainbow River. Out of perhaps a million Koi, only one Koi is dedicated and strong enough to swim all the way to the head of the river and leap from the water into the air where he is transformed into a Koi dragon. A wise reminder for us all. The pair $225.
