Rare Fiske Aquarium on Stand Signed & Dated 1876

In two parts, this very rare piece is exceptional in all respects. All original paint; perfect condition; exuberant acanthus leaf decoration to the stand; graceful cabriole legs. New aquarium-standard glass and sealant. From a Hudson Valley, NY estate. Truly a collector’s piece and most likely a custom-made piece, as it does not appear in the Fiske catalog. Available from The Elemental garden on 1stDibs

I can just imagine this filled with shells, coral and maybe a blowfish or two….
