Primary Description: 
Colorless lead glass; tooled, mold-formed pedestal. Sculptural form of a dolphin on a square base (book rest?). Body, head, and tail tooled from one elongated piece of glass forming a "C". The tail is achieved by splitting the glass into halves and flattening the two pats into flippers. The fish is resting on the base on its head, supported by two jammed fins. Rayed moldings around the eyes and the pontal S-curve on its head show its Barogne inspiration.
