A recent Taobao fishing expedition yielded a good catch. It’s only grade 3 quality, but it includes a couple of nice examples. First, Shuangyu (double fish) from Dalian:



As far as I understand, in Chinese culture fish symbolise wealth and abundance. Double fish can represent success and fidelity in a marriage.





Under the balance: D831 (Dalian January 1983?)

Second, Sanyu (three fish) from Shijiazhuang:





The symbol of three fish with one head is quite old and is found in a number of Asian cultures. AlbertaTime has an excellent example.
