Fish themed nautical gifts and decorative items

Tony the Tin Seahorse - DGS6856

Measures 48 cms in height and 15cms wide, excellent tin based nautical décor and aspirational sea themed wall art.

£24.95 each


A school of seahorses - DGS6923

Measures 20 cms long and 10 cms high. What a lovely little ocean themed ornament. We still have some rare seahorses here off Studland Bay and this happy little line at 20 cms is just the right size to fit in to all nautical nooks and crannies.

£9.95 each


Just Keep “Shoaling” Wall Art - DGS6881

Measures 50 cms wide, 27 cms high and approximately 5 cms deep. A very clean look and these  look best up on the wall on their own  in their own special place. Currently launching  some very pretty wall art in nautical style and continuing to  lead the way in retailing seaside design. Can't see exactly what you are after? It's always worth e mailing and we will try and reply with a friendly e mail.

£22.50 each


Tin School of Fish on Long Base - DG5763

Tin School of Fish on Long Base


Tin fish on a wooden base. We sell lots because this is a lovely item! Measures 38 cms long by 13 cms in height.

£22.50 each



Small School of Sprats - DG5837

Small School of Sprats Decorative Art


The Small School of Sprats on a driftwood base is an interesting little item measuring 10 cms in width by 8 cms in height. 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". They are prevalent in the Baltic sea so we will sit back and wait for the orders to come in from Finland, Latvia and Lithuania. Excellent shipping prices to Poland too. 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.

£29.95 each



Wanda the Whale - DG5791

Wanda the Wooden Whale


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.

£19.95 each



Set of Five Fish as Wall Art - DG6123

Set of Five Fish as Wall Art


Metal wall art, always a great seller and our individual fish make for great wall decor. Measures as follows. Largest at 24 cms  being fed less all the way down to 15 cms.

£23.95 each



Large Brown Crab Wall Art - DG6128

Large Brown Crab Wall Art


Measures 45 cms by 36 cms and a whopping wall art crab for a special wall. Great nautical decor and chunky piece of art. A crab has to always figure somewhere in the nautical theme.

£59.95 each



Large White Crab Wall Art - DG6127

Large White Crab Wall Art


With a click of the mouse you can add more than a touch of coastal flair to your beach themed home  with this wonderful crab metal wall art sculpture.   As you can see from the picture this of all crabs is eye catching and unique and worthy of its place on the wall. Measures  45 cms by 36 cms.

£49 each



Hungry Big Fish Wall Art - DG5757

Hungry Big Fish Wall Art


These are cool, mouths wide open and three on the wall art. Made from reclaimed distressed wood. Measures 42 cms long, 11 cms high and the depth off the wall is 7 cms. Very unlikely that your neighbours will have one and probably only because they have never visited Dorset Gifts online. We are being supplied more of these than other retailers who aspire to our collection, so if we are being beaten on price please let us know and we will apologise.

£18.95 each



Trio of Seahorses Wall Art - DG6124

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. Our supplier ethically sources small manufacturers to work on their unique designs here in the UK and this makes us very pleased to partner with them as we can inform exactly where these were manufactured and to the buyer, you can rest assured that these have been produced in an environment where the manufacturer and workers benefit as much as the end user. 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.

£22.50 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!

£29.50 each


Silver Resin Fish - DG8802

Our silver resin fish stand upright on their own and are 18 cms long and 13 cms tall with a depth of about 5 cms. Anglers amongst you could perhaps inform us of the species of fish!  He's looking handsome though and with apologies he doesn't have any green sheen, that's the reflection of the trees behind us!  

£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


Silver Resin Lobster - DG8806

Super sized for a classic nautically themed decoration at 36 cms long,  8 cms high and 15 cms wide. One of our best sellers this year.

£24.50 each
£45 for 2



Silver Resin Plaice - DG 8807

In our range of resin silver sealife our plaice is the only item that can be wall hung with an area on the back large enough for a nail. It measures 33 cms long, 23 cms high and 5 cms thick. Looks shiny!

£18.95 each
£35 for 2



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

These Distressed Wooden Racing Fish on a Base look impressive at 47 cms  in length and the fish have the look of being in a race. A wooden product  with the wood having that distressed look. The entire ornament is 30 cms high and 11 cms deep.


£49.00 each



Energetic Wooden Fish on Wood - DGSJ4882

Energetic Wooden Fish on Wood

Our wooden energetic fish look good in pairs and measure 31 cms wide and about the same in height. The depth is about 11 cms.  These have recently been used as nautical wedding table centres not once, not twice, but three times. Not only confined to weddings though, these Energetic Wooden Fish on Wood will enliven any empty space.


£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



Hanging School of Sprats - DGSJ5838

Hanging School of Sprats

After the success of our hanging school of sardines (which can be seen above) we put our thinking caps on and someone mentioned sprats. Dorset Gifts proudly presents the “hanging school of sprats” beautifully presented on driftwood and measuring 15 cms in length, approximately 7 cms in height and 2 cms deep. One for the kitchen?


£6.95 each



Marine Life Groyne - DGSJ5832

A feature fish product with three hooks and a fishy look about it. Made of wood and from the top of the fish to the bottom of the hook we are looking at a depth of 30 cms. Our fish is 61 cms long. 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

Zander Fish Cushion 70cms - DGZANDER


All our gloss finished polyester fish cushions have a multitude of uses and are very lifelike. Some of our customers even take them fishing with them.

They're famous too as they made an appearance in The Apprentice in November 2016 opposite our shop on Poole Quay. One of the tasks was to sell these exclusively at the Poole Quay Boat Show. Unfortunately the charming young man (who didn't win) got fired but we think it was more down to the fact that we were selling them cheaper in our shop. I suppose it was raining too.

Anyway, we digress, and these are very popular and have made good TV!  The fish of your choice is printed on both sides and yes, they have a multitude of uses. Although they are well stuffed cushions they are often bought just for décor and can brighten up a nautical room. A great present  for children too as are CE tested for children aged 3 upwards.

At 70 cms length the lesser spotted Zander cushion (in our waters! )

Will the Wooden Whale on a Stand - DG5020


Yes, we know he's not a fish but in the absence of a dedicated marine mammal page, we don't think he'll mind being here. He's Will, and he's a big wooden whale to make an equally big statement at a place of your choice in your home. Actually, he's not so big - 31 cms long and about 21 cms high, so not intrusively large, probably the perfect size for an ornamental whale!
