I posted this after seeing a post last week of a Kralik centerpiece with a glass chain connecting smaller pieces.
This Venetian Dolphin centerpiece was originally made the same way. It had a glass chain that connected to smaller pieces. If you look at the back of each dolphin head, you will see a clear glass loop. This was where the glass chain connecting to the largest piece.
The centerpiece stands 10 1/2" tall and is in excellent condition. It does have some darkness in the bottom of each dolphin stem, showing that it was actually used to hold flowers.
When I purchased the centerpiece, I didn't know it had anything missing. It is still a favorite in my collection and displays well on its own.
The last picture shows one of my Venetian shelves in a display cabinet.
