“Who shall have a etc” is a line from a trad English folk song, but this plate isn’t English it’s one I saw earlier this year in Selcuk, Turkey. I wonder why the fish are wearing lipstick….do you think they are going out for a night on the tiles? :)

    I don’t go for this kind of stuff so much but there is absolutely no doubt that it’s excellent Turkish kitsch! I love fish with lipstick. The linoleum floor down in my rec room is covered with fish with bright red lipstick.

    How big is this plate? Was this photo shot in the store or do you own all that stuff in back? Nice hookah!

    Hi Allee, the plate is 10″. and it was shot in the store which caters mainly for tourists like myself. I could have emptied the shop…and my bank balance.
    There were a lot of nice hookahs for sale, and some of the jewelry would have made your eyes water!
    What is it with fish and lipstick? :)
