Fishing for info

Posted by andrea tomkins in: - Thrifty is nifty|Oh! Things!

I’m busy busy… working on two articles, one of which is for our local paper that is essentially satisfying my love for second-hand goods. :)

Below is one of the items I want to write about. I bought it for 50 cents. It’s 4 or 5 inches in diameter. There is a hole in the lid. There are no markings on the bottom so I have no idea where to start Googling. I doubt it’s worth anything, but if anyone out there can give me any info about it I would really appreciate it! (i.e I’m not even sure what style this is suppose to be: Chinese? Japanese? None of the above?)

And what do you think? Trash or treasure? Worthy of giving as a gift?

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
