condition: good
Rare vintage 1940s chinese rattan fish hut with stand. Approx 84 years old, hexagon shaped. It is three pieces: the base, fish tank, and roof with an opening hatch. Similar to Ficks Reed. It is currently unaltered, has some imperfections. However, it is structurally sound and in overall good vintage condition. Can be used as an aquarium, terrarium, or vivarium. I have not tested it, never got around to restoring it (resealing and repainting/replacing some inside cosmetic veneer pieces). Used as decor for roughly 3 yrs. In restored condition it roughly doubles in value.

Period: 1940-1949
EST Date of Manufacture: 1940
Materials: Rattan
Style: Mid-Century Modern (of the period)

Dimensions: 23”W x 23”D x 57”H

Harvey Schwartz, The Rattan Man restored an identical tank within the last few yrs and my source material is from one of his prior listings.

Asking: $1,250 - slightly negotiable for serious buyers.

Prefer local pickup in Montevallo 35115. Will consider delivery for an additional fee dependent on location.
