    What you have is called a fish bowl (see the koi on the inside). The flowers are probably peonies which are seen in eastern art. In China and Japan, the peony symbolizes good fortune, wealth, nobility, and/or value. Five dollars was a good value.

    These fish bowls can be purchased at numerous stores. It makes a great planter and some people put the bowl on a stand, a piece of round glass on top, and use it as an accent table.
