Rare Cloisonne Jeremy Fisher Brooch by Fish from their Beatrix Potter Series of characters produced in the early 1990s, and this one is the frog Jeremy Fisher, sitting on a lily pad fishing for his dinner. This brooch is worked in cloisonné enamel over a 22ct gold plated base, designed by the Fish Crown Enamels company. It measures 3.8cm at its highest point and 5cm at its widest point and has a secure rollover clasp.

It carries the Fish Co. brand logo on the reverse along with the logo for FW & Co, which is the original publisher Frederick Warne, now owned by Penguin Books. It also has the year 1992 and it weighs 12.0g. The backing texture is different from the usual Fish design, and was used especially for this range. Fish Enterprises Ltd. was a UK company that produced cloisonne style enamel jewellery in the 1980's-1990's.

Their jewellery is often times described as cloisonne but it was not created with wires applied to a base. It was created by stamping the designs and sections onto a solid base that was then filled with enamel so it is more correct to call it stamped champleve or stamped basse taille enamel depending on the piece. Or you can just call them enamelled.

They called their jewellery "Fine Enamels" and sold it under several lines with packaging that read Fish Fine Enamels, Fine Enamels by Fish, Fine Enamels by Fish Enterprises or Fine Enamels by Crown Jewellery. Fish Enterprises Ltd. used numerous marks on their jewellery pieces. They had an all word mark of ©FISH, a mark that is commonly referred to as two fishes but it actually looks like three fishes swimming, and a fish inside of a crown mark.

This beautiful piece of jewellery began its journey many years ago and may have some very minor imperfections collected along its travels. By purchasing this piece you will investing in a brand new chapter of its story as well as making a positively conscious choice on sustainable fashion. Vintage jewellery for the beautiful you on our beautiful planet.
