Measures Approx: 17" length x 14" tall x 11" depth
Condition: These two fighters are in remarkable condition given their likely age. The fish are hand carved in teak from multiple pieces of wood held together with wire-reinforced joints. There is a minor separation where the pectoral fin connects to the body of each fish. The pieces are still plenty strong and delicate only due to the elegant, flowy nature of the carvings. You may choose to re-glue or leave as-is; It's not something that really stands out given the drama of the pieces.

About the Betta:
The Siamese fighting fish also known as betta, is a popular species of freshwater aquarium fish.
The name of the genus is derived from ikan bettah, taken from a local dialect of Malay.
The wild ancestors of this fish are native to the rice paddies of Thailand,Malaysia,Cambodia,
and Vietnam are called pla-kad (lit. biting fish) in Thai or trey krem in Khmer.
