Is this an unusual Chalet etching?

Post  Pierre-D on Sat Sep 08, 2012 1:52 pm

Hello,
I got a signed fish, but instead of Chalet Canada, it's reads Chalet "BA" or "DA" (it's hard to say). I've never seen that before. Is that unusual?

hi Pierre,

I can't see from the pic - can you take another one with a pointer showing the marking. Thanks!

Hi Deb,
I tried with a pointer, but couldn't get a good picture. (Chalet animals are so hard to photograph!) The following is the best I could do. I tried to angle it in the light so that the etching could be seen more clearly.

mismark

Hi Pierre,

Thanks for retaking pic - so clear!

That is a classic mismark - last 2 letters of "Canada" from the common "Chalet Canada" signature. The varities are endless and fun to find.

lol Why did't I think of that!

Actually, the etchings are sometimes barely noticeable. A few weeks ago, someone sold me a beautifully proportioned "unmarked" twist vase. The base was a bit dirty and had a little felt residue on it, so I gave it a good wash. Once it was sparkling clean, there was barely a scratch on that base AND I uncovered a very, very light Chalet Canada etching!! I almost felt guilty for getting it for so cheap... but not really Very Happy

Hi Pierre,

I know - LOL. I did that my first time too re a mismark - thought I had found the rarest piece of Chalet everLOL

That is a super super well done vase.

Hi Pierre,nice fish.......I have a set of 3 like that. How tall is the one you have. I'm really curious on how many different sizes some of the animals came in as I have a few of the same but different sizes. I can't quite remember but i think my tallest fish like this was 12-14 inches then 2 more just a bit smaller. I really like these fish as they are so sleek looking.
Have a good day Bob

RE FISH

Hi Bob,

I agree with you, this shape of fish is quite nice. I never paid much attention to Chalet animals till recently. I'm really starting to appreciate them.

This particular fish is a little over 10 inches high. I would love to get others in different sizes.
