    This looks like it belongs in the bottom of a very large fish tank. unfortunately it's broken in a few places. but it's quite the glazing feat! i wonder when it was made - new, mid-century? chinese - probably.

      i stuck it in the nursery and will probably bury it in plants at some point. it's got beautiful glazework on it, but it's such a monstrosity!
