    Very large tank in cut crystal flanked by a sculpture of a pelican. Signature on the cork.
    Object having been re-silvered and restored by a professional according to the rules of the art but which remains fragile at the level of the hinge.
    The vine leaf base is superb.
    Rare and exceptional object signed by one of the masters of animal drawing.
    He is considered to be one of the greatest European animal designers. The universe of Benjamin Rabier is strewn with animals. In 1906, Benjamin Rabier published a fully illustrated edition of La Fontaine's Fables with Jules Tallandier. He also illustrated Renart's Roman and Buffon’s Natural History. In 1921, Léon Bel was inspired by a design by Benjamin Rabier as the logo for his La vache qui rit brand. This cow decorated fresh meat transport trucks during World War I and was nicknamed the "Wachkyrie". But his most famous comic book character remains Gideon the Duck, whose stories were published between 1923 and 1939 in 16 albums. He also drew the famous whale of the Salins du Midi
