    I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT, WHERE OR WHEN THIS BOWL IS FROM. IT SEEMS TO BE MADE OUT OF CONCH, BUT I'M NOT SURE. IT HAS DRAGONS, CATFISH (OR SOME KINDA FISH), URN, GENIE-LOOKING LAMP, WHEEL, UMBRELLA, CELTIC-LOOKING SYMBOL, A SHELL & SEA CREATURES (WOW!!). THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST DETAILED ITEMS I'VE RAN ACROSS. THERE ARE NO MARKINGS ON IT SO IT COULD HAVE BEEN A LOCAL ARTIST OR IT COULD HAVE BEEN SOMEONE RENOWNED TO PERFORM SUCH CRAFTSMANSHIP. I COULD SURELY USE SOME MORE HELP IF ANYONE HAS ANY SUGGESTIONS OR IDEAS ON THIS WEIRD BUT WILD, HIGHLY DETAILED BOWL.

      Appears Chinese, kind of like cinnabar but not red.
