Very Rare Custom Solid Brass w/Marble top and solid copper Seahorse legs Aquarium Antique. I bought it at an antique store in Chicago. I don’t know anything about it other then the fact that I enjoyed it over these past 23 years. There are no markings or name plates anywhere that I can find, so I can’t be sure. Upon further research on line, someone else writes that some guy made 6 of these models back in the early 1990’s. Maybe someone out there knows better what it is. If it’s a reproduction made later, then you still have a beautiful cast tank that’s a talk and a show piece when someone sees it. I love this tank as it brought me years of pleasure. It is soothing on the eyes and magical in appearance. TRULLY a rarity in antique or reproduction, whichever it is. So whichever way you look at it, my price is correct. It is currently located in Europe. You will need 3/4 people to move it empty, it’s that heavy. Just needs cleaning and I’m in the process of cleaning it. Used as both salt and fresh water, but mostly salt, hence the slight oxidation on copper. Measures 50″ high, 46″, wide, 26 deep. I love this tank. It is TRULLY for the collector who enjoys the fish hobby and appreciates fine art and antiques. Pictures shown are before cleaning and after and cleaning continues. Unfortunately in order to clean it, the patina is being removed but it still shows its rich age and history as plenty aged patina is left, truly timeless. Tank can be delivered by car anywhere in Europe. The item “Jewel Aquarium Very Rare Custom Solid Cast Brass withMarble Antique. Incredible” is in sale since Friday, March 4, 2016.
