I had this secret little wish--that I could find a set of vintage ceramic whales for my hubby. I was showing him pictures of the collectible vintage marine wall plaques on ebay, telling him about the astronomical prices. He loved the whales when I showed him--got all excited. Well, I figured that was as close as he was going to get to them. Low and behold I found a set! One of the babies is missing, but do we care? These are labeled CNC Los Angeles. Apparently they are the only marine critters the company offered. Norcrest has a set, but I must say, I think these are much cuter!! I washed, wired and hung them up over the track lights in the bathroom. There's a whole 9 feet of space for more fish!
