19th Century French Aquarium


This is a rare large size of a French 19th Century Aquarium. I have never seen one this large. It still has its original air pump in the middle. It would of been someone's job to either hand pump, or foot pump, so the fish would be oxygen in the tank. It is made of a white base metal, with 6 sides of glass. I was fortunate enough to have landed 2 of the original candle holders , that fit on each corner. This would of been for lighting, and maybe adding a little heat for the tank. The Candle holders come off, and can be placed in any corner. Most likely there would have been 4 in the Victorian Era. There is one piece of glass that fits on the top, and can be taken off. This piece is a newer replacement piece. The trim has an off white paint color. This most likely came from a very wealthy family, that would of had extra staff to maintain. It is 14 1/2" tall, 19" across , and 15 1/2" wide. I have tested it with water in it, and it did hold water at the time. This piece would also be a great , miniature green house with small plants, or just as it was designed for.
