Circa-1930s carved miro wood fish from Pitcairn Island, made by Gifford Christian, great grandson of Fletcher Christian, captain of the HMS Bounty. 303 grams, 7-1/2" tall, 8-1/2" wide. Interesting relic of history, this hand-carved flying fish (with repaired tail) made from wood harvested on the coral atoll of Henderson Island for tourists is supported on a turned column on a round base and stamped with "Souvenir From Pitcairn." It was supposedly made by Gifford Christian, relative of Fletcher Christian whose name is inextricably linked with Pitcairn. With photo-certificate.
