An Unusual Bronze and Marble Figural Aquarium by Theodore Ullmann.

Signed 'TH. ULLMANN', with 'AR' foundry cachet for the Arthur Rubenstein Foundry in Vienna and stamped 'AUSTRIA'.

This unusual figural aquarium includes finely modelled figures of Elephants and Monkeys at the waters edge. The aquarium is set on a verde antico marble plinth and raised on a stylised wrought iron table base.

The design is characteristic of the playful and inventive approach of Ullmann's work in the early 1920's, marking a transition between the naturalism of art nouveau and the stylised aesthetics of art deco.
