A small green bottle is encased in a copper cage. A cork stopper has a copper flower. The front has an animal, a ''furt.'' the translation a hippo. It doesn't look like any hippo I've ever seen. The 5 7/8'' x 4 3/8'' octagonal base has a June 29, 1952 date. The flask hangs from the 8'' stand. The copper wrap on the flask has ''curls'' at the edges. This interesting piece is in very good condition.
