I was organizing some tool boxes and came across this magnet collection attached to one end of a red metal drawer stack. This fishing inspired set ranges in age from about 10 to 15 years old. They are beautifully detailed little objects. I don't quite think these creations qualify as relics yet but they will in a few more years.

I have some similar magnets like those fish. One broke actually but they are cool. I also have a really cool handpainted one. It's at camp. Hope all is well.

Those fish magnets were widely distributed. I believe they are made from a mold and then hand painted to whatever species suited the region. I'm not sure if they are even still in production.
