Older all wooden version

Twist the handle and the fish flaps about. A simple but effective automaton and it is not immediately obvious how it works. Original all-wooden version (except for the magnets).
Fish carved from lime wood and available as natural wood or as a painted finish.
Length is 10cms. Other sizes are possible.
