    I've always wanted one of these but I didn't want another blue and white piece. So, when I saw this one at Salvation Army it was a no brainer. It 's a large Chinese fish bowl or planter that measures 14 " in diameter and 12" high. Yes, it has a 8 " hairline in the side at the bottom. Obviously someone set it down too hard on it's bottom corner and crack. Not surprised, it weights around 15-20 pounds ! It also had a TJ Maxx sticker on the inside. I don't mind that it's modern really. Most of our TJ's bit the dust during the recession. I'd say it dates from the 1980's or 90's at most. I love the goldfish swimming around inside plus I already had the stand. It's just a nice eye catching piece. As a bonus there was a 10" round vase with the same pattern and colors which I also picked up. -Mike-

      Thank you Kyratango :)...the crack looks worse in the picture for some reason. Not as bad when it's sitting on the floor. Doesn't show from the inside hardly at all. You have so many beautiful pieces yourself I love them all. Just starting to get into jewelry. I like the the creepy crawly pieces Especially dragonflies.
