The John Perry Ocean figurine collection is unmistakable with it’s trademark Pellucida white resin compound material and it’s burled wood base. The original line of John Perry figurines used a strictly white Pellucida for all figurines, however, recently beautiful airbrushing has been added to add a new dimension to the look. Two pieces that benefited greatly from the use of airbrushing were the John Perry Sailfish and Marlin figurines. Each Marlin and Sailfish figurine is hand airbrushed so each figurine although similar is totally unique. Adding to the allure of the John Perry figurines is the totally one of a kind burled wood base. John Perry has informed retailers that the supply of burled wood bases is no longer viable so those collectors with the burled wood base Marlin figurine or Sailfish Figurine truly have an irreplaceable family heirloom with each statue. The main reason for collecting the John Perry Marlin Figurine or Sailfish figurine is the natural warm look of the burled wood base against the high tech Pellucida formed Sailfish or Marlin.
