This is a Daum French crystal whimsical figurine. This mainly amber and grey but multi-hued cat is casually fishing into an aquarium with its front paw. The rare and ancient "Pâte de Verre" glassmaking technique, which dates back to 5,000 BC, involves melting many fragments of colored crystal within a mold. This results in intense colors and subtle shading. Measures 4” x 2 ¾” x 3 1⁄8”h. He has a small chip on the top left back corner of the fish tank. Handmade in France. Signed Daum France on the Bottom of the Piece.
