Hirota Blue Edo Glass Goldfish Bowl

Only 3 pieces in stock!

This glass goldfish bowl is beautifully decorated with a bright blue ruffled rim reminiscent of a flower shape.

The classic design is said to have appeared in Japan from the Taisho (1912–1926) to the early Showa (1926-1989) period. Its cool appearance brings a sense of summery nostalgia to the room.

It can be used not only for keeping fish, but also as an interior decoration, for displaying flowers, or for holding candies.

When keeping fish, a goldfish bowl is said to be appropriate for keeping one or two goldfish of 3 to 4cm(1.2-1.6in) in length because of the small amount of water it can hold. Goldfish can grow up to 15cm(5.9) in length, so it is difficult to keep them for life.

Fish species such as "Medaka (rice fish)" and white cloud mountain minnow are said to be well-suited for keeping in a goldfish bowl as they do not grow as large as goldfish and do not necessarily require equipment such as filtration systems.
