There are 3 sides to this story...although I'm not aware of any actual literary allusion it might represent. Perhaps its origins are mythical in nature or perhaps a Danish Moby Dick equivalent. The fish is neither a swordfish nor a whale, but some sort of mystical sea creature. In addition we have sailors on a Danish vessel and a classic dessert island...all captured in genuine 24k gold inlay. This is an Art Deco treasure from Royal Copenhagen, circa the 1930s.
