Lot No. 0599


Description: Large Polar Bear fish bowl made with two ceramic parts and a glass bowl which fits inside. The effect is to have fish swimming around the glass bowl (which is lighted from below) while a polar bear look down from above. Two other bears battle above an ice cave over the bowl. Signed “Makonicka” on the base, there is much detail to the bears and the ice cave which is done in deep blue while at the top of the ice cave, a series of small icicles hang down. Height is approximately 24 inches and diameter is approximately 15 inches. Small chips to the base and damage to the glass bowl which will (unfortunately) not hold water.

Estimate: $1,000.00 - $1,500.00
