BIG FISH:  More difficult to locate than Trout and Fly pattern, Big Fish was produced in bowl form only. The fish is somewhat smaller than the one used in Trout and Fly and there are differences in the flower designs. Round, square and tri-cornered examples can be found with several edge variations. The carnival colors are amethyst, green, marigold and vaseline. Satin and radium finishes are known, with either considered a treasure!

LITTLE STARS:  7-8 bowls are seen most often. Ruffled, three and one edge, and the highly desired ice cream shape. These display the pattern quite nicely and tend to have a higher market value.
The 8-9 ice cream shapes are scarce and highly desirable. A 9 green, radium finish bowl with candy ribbon edge and another in lavender with the same attributes are known. Two 9 bowls in green and in marigold , along with a 10 green are known. At least one 10 blue ice cream bowl is known. Overall, marigold is the most difficult color to find in this pattern, usually having a good deep color and excellent iridescence.
6 ice cream shape sauces in marigold, amethyst, blue and green are known.

Dean & Diane Fry - 12-09

Do not fret because of evildoers, nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of you heart.
Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; do not fret----it only causes harm.
For evildoers shall be cut off; but those who wait on the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.
For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;
indeed, you will look carefully for his place, but it shall be no more.
But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.  
~~~~~~~ (Psalm 37:1-11)

Psalm 37 is an acrostic psalm, where the first letter of the verse follows the order of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
