Beach Fish Sign - DGL8814

Blue Left Swimming Fish - DGL8171

Natural Finish Bunch of Hanging Fish

Silver Coloured Metallic Seahorses - DGSD11512

Silver coloured metallic resin seahorses and this item stands 15.5 cms in height  and approximately 9 cms at widest. Great seahorse decor. The kids love them and so do the adults. Seahorses are certainly close to us along the Dorset Coast – this item has been listed during the Covid 19 pandemic and one positive to come out of the situation is that because boats have not been allowed out for recreational purposes the seahorses have thrived and increased in numbers along Poole Bay and Studland. Seahorses… even silver coloured ones – they are beautiful.

£9.95 each



Pod of Blue Whales on Driftwood - DGS6195

Not all anchovies are the same colour, especially when swimming against the tide or when purchased from Dorset Gifts – measuring 7 cms in height and 15 cms wide and all made of tin then fixed to a piece of driftwood – no two are the same. Delightful fish wall hanging.

£14.95 each



Silver Tin Starfish Wall Art - DGS6858

Sea Stars or Starfish make excellent sea themed wall décor and our silver metal starfish measure 50 cms in width and 42 cms in height. Weighing under 100 grammes if it did fall off the wall it shouldn’t cause too much damage but its lightness makes it nice and easy to fix on the wall with brackets on the back.

A smack of jellyfish, the smack number three, these are the silver metal and wooden types of smack and if you’re wondering about the name…..have you ever come in contact with one. 55 cms high and 14 cms wide is the largest in the middle and the smaller smacks proportionally smaller as seen in the wonderful picture. Metal ziggy zaggy hooks on the back of each.

Shimmering sprats in silver on a piece of driftwood and sells well alongside our hanging school of sprats on driftwood. Sprattus are small oily swimmers better known by their common name of "sprat".

This small school of sprats is not edible.

£8.95 each



Swirl Twin Anchovies Wall Art - DG6122

Swirl Twin Anchovies Wall Art


A little bit different. The theme is anchovies  and this just shows one type (there are over 140 varieties). The anchovy  doesn't have it so good and out of sympathy why not buy one? They're a significant  food source for anything predatory where they choose to swim. On the wall in your living room we feel they can relax and safely watch Blue Planet! Measures 43 cms in length and 36 cms high.

£35 each



Wanda the Whale - DG5791

She's wooden and perfectly poised on a stand  for nautical interior decor.  We don't like to be beaten on price so very willing to refund postage and difference if found less expensive elsewhere. Measures 29 cms by 22 cms and 9 cms deep.

Trio of Seahorses Wall Art


Silver tin trio of seahorses – best seller last year and probably going to be a few sales this year too.

These measure 34 cms in height and 23 cms in width.

£24.95 each



Vertical Tin School of Fish - DGSJ4884

Vertical Tin School of Fish


This shoal of fish standing vertically on a wooden base and measuring 38 cms in height and 20 cms in width looks great as a single shoal but we must say, we saw three of these lined up together and the fish and tin sparkled. The Vertical Tin School of Fish will brighten up any empty corner or surface.

£24.95 each



Metal Mackerel Wall Art - DG3081

Metal Mackerel Wall Art

Metal Mackerel Wall Art

You'll need a bit of room and a plain wall for this Metal Mackerel Wall Art piece. You'll also need to be open minded about just how much each fish really resembles a mackerel. If you have picky fishermen in your saeside cottage, just refer to it as wall art or better still "fish" wall art. These measure 51 cms in height and approximately 40cms across and mackerel or no mackerel, we recommend you purchase one. They're great!

£35 each
£60 for 2 items



Silver Resin Fish - DG8802

Silver Resin Fish Ornament

Our silver resin fish ornaments stand upright on their own and are 18 cms long and 13 cms tall with a depth of about 5 cms.

£12.95 each
£25 for 2



Silver Resin Long-tailed Fish - DG8804

I'm quite sure that while snorkelling in the Maldives, I have been overtaken by one of these - and with both eyes fixed on me! Our resin silver long tailed fish measures 21 cms in length, 15 cms long and at £15.95 you can save the airfare.

£15.95 each


Shoal of Fish around a Pole - DGSJ5761

Shoal of Fish around a Pole

It's a shoal of fish around a wooden pole and the loo roll or toilet seat are not included. In fact, we are not completely sure why the loo roll is there as it doesn't fit perfectly due to EU legislation regarding loo roll holder sizes.

In any case, it's a thought and not a particularly beautiful one although the item itself at 40 cms in height probably is perfect for not pulling a back muscle. Any alternatives use suggestions please email to .   Beautifully carved in wood.


£29.95 each



Seahorse and Marlin Pair - DG55286

We like the size of our seahorse and marlin pairs and the price of course is for the pair. They measure 22 cms in height, are very detailed and are made of resin. Predominantly white with some yellow on the bodies. Unusual and very good sellers.


£4.95 for the pair



Distressed Wooden Racing Fish on Base - DGSJ5766

Distressed Wooden Racing Fish on Base

Energetic Wooden Fish on Wood - DGSJ4882

Energetic Wooden Fish on Wood

£29.95 each



Hanging School of Sardines on Driftwood - DGSJ5839

Hanging School of Sardines on Driftwood

We don't have many sardine products and seeing as Cornwall is a major destination for our merchandise we have sourced these driftwood hangers at 15 cms in length with several little sardines on them to set a Cornish scene, although sardine numbers aren't what they were we will try and keep our stock numbers up!  This Hanging School of Sardines on Driftwood hanger is about 7 cms high  and the depth is just over 2 cms and is one of our favourite driftwood hanging fish items.


£7.99 each

Got a fish restaurant? Sea theme? Just like fish? We have pondered and guessed at what type of fish this is and are up for answers on a postcard. We have some great fish products at Dorset Gifts and this one is some way up the ladder, but can't confirm it's a salmon ladder - yet.

£24.95 each
