This is a J W Fiske Cast Iron Fish tank or aquarium. It is in original as found condition. I have decided not to paint and restore it as the buyer may prefer to do it themselves. The base of the actual tank has 2 wholes, but those wholes cannot be accessed as there is a glass placed on top of them. I would think the wholes are original and for emptying water and possibly adding a pump to the fish tank. With the glass piece this cannot be done. This glass piece is cracked as shown. This larger Fiske rectangular model rarely appears in the market place. The glass sides appear to be original and are in good condition, with a minor Imperfection the size of a penny near the top of one panel.
I ship with a National Trucking company and have shipped these genuine Fiske fish tanks before. I can get you a shipping quote with your city and zip code. Please take out insurance as quote may not include insurance. There are no returns.
