The top of the base is signed with a “B” for Henri Berge, the designer and a famous French sculptor. The base is 2 3/4 inches by 3 inches and the height is 4 inches.

It took me years to find one of these in excellent condition and this is it. The first two I had both were damaged. The design is appealing and it has a pleasing heft. The depth of the aquamarine color is mesmerizing. A top Walter in really amazing condition and quality.  $1900
