Josef Inwald 1930s 'Poisson Volant' Peach Glass Float Bowl, Frog and Centrepiece

A very substantial centrepiece float bowl, frog and fish figurine in peach pressed glass.  The makers – Inwald – were based in Vienna but also manufactured in Bohemia.  Made during the 1930s this centrepiece is true Art Deco in style and elegance.  The bowl curves inwards towards the top and has 6 sets of rows of fluting going from the flat base to the inward curved fluted top.  The flower frog is circular and has 12 holes for flowers, and a central seated hole for the frosted glass flying fish to stand in.

This item is in excellent condition for its age. The only fault I can see is a very tiny chip on one of the fins on the fish (see last photo).
Bowl: 27.5 cm diameter at rim x 8 cm tall
Fish: 19.7 cm tall
Frog: 15 cm diameter at top
Total height of bowl and fish inserted in the frog is about 24 cm.
