Some things are just so flirty and silly you have to love them.
A Japanese made glass basket, too small for anything much at all.....maybe some smarties or peanuts. Despite the big air bubble in the base I do like it's twisted handle and ruffled edge and the colours are great, even as they are very Japanese .
A really cute ashtray, although why you would want a lovely fish swimming around cigarette blah I don't know. I guess it brightens things up!
The Japanese are still a nation of smokers and ashtrays are a common production item. They come in all shapes, sizes, and styles.
I am unable to identify the maker although I have some wishy washy ideas.
Age? Not sure, but contemporary not vintage.
