Common Carp by Barnes of London


For Sale








Common Carp (Cyprinu carpio) by Barnes of London. A data label dates the case to 1888, with a weight of 1lb and 10oz. There is a trade label to upper left of the case interior. Size 18" x 12.5" x 6". <click image to enlarge>




N.B. I know very little about fish. I have always thought this was a Common Carp, but at least two collectors are convinced it is a Crucian Carp. So sold as a 'stuffed fish!".
