Huge Art Nouveau Austrian Fish Bowl holder c1890

JOHANN MARESCH Factory by Artist August Otto

Rare and significant - highly collectible piece

Large (59cm tall) Goldfish bowl holder from the factory of Johann Maresch by their most famous artist August Otto

Could probably do with a clean. In good all round order - a few small chips including the larger one on the back that I have tried to show. Does not include the goldfish bowl. There is a hole in her hand that looks to be supposed to be holding something - probably a small wooden bucket i would think (as she looks to be feeding the fish and the ducks).

Any questions please ask

I would prefer pickup but can courier - although I would have to charge for lots of bubble wrap! I would wrap very very well but shipping would have to be at buyers risk.
