Any ideas on this vintage bowl?
I'm wondering if y'all can give me some pointers about this vintage (cuz it's older than ME) bowl. It's hefty, pottery/stoneware/something. Seems to be handpainted, Japanese or fake Japanese. Love the fat bird on the side. Any ideas, or suggestions on trying to figure out where this came from? Thanks! (I've been trying to work through the Gotheborg site--this would be easier if I could read Japanese....) I would be very surprised if this was NOT intended for tourists to purchase.
Pardon the glob of earthquake putty.
