It is unusual to see a Czechoslovakian aquarium. Murano Aquariums are much more common and highly collectable. It is an interesting and rare example and would fit nicely in a collection of aquariums. The weight is composed in four layers two layers of stringy seagrass that has been thoughtful placed to best enhance the stripped tropical fish followed by a final layer of more seagrass, fronds and unusual coppery beaded bubbles.
