Red and Black Telescope Goldfish Pond Glass Plate

Traditional Japanese design and crafts

Together with kakigori shaved ice, yukata cotton kimono, and geta sandals, goldfish are one of the standard elements of the Japanese summer, both in the neighborhoods of Tokyo and the countryside. You will find children (and grownups) at summer festivals trying to catch goldfish with a paper scoop out of a tank. The Red and Black Telescope Goldfish Pond Glass Plate is a way to have two of those fish on your table without having to struggle with the paper scoop at a festival stall!

The "telescope" part in the name of the Red and Black Telescope Goldfish Pond Glass Plate refers to the species of goldfish very common in Japan, whose eyes protrude from the sides of its head. The glass artist who created this plate, Tomomi Matsuo, painted a red and black goldfish and these work in harmony with the bubbles the artist has left in the glass, with the result that it feels like you are gazing at fish swimming in a small pond. A beautiful 13.5 x 15.5 x 2.5 cm (5.3 x 6.1 x 1") item that can be used as an actual plate or become an ornament that transforms your home with the elegance of Japanese crafts.
