Subject:Unusual Glass Vase?
Posted By: Amy Tue, Jul 20, 2021 IP: 2603:6011:a01:4364:c

My friend recently bought this and we have no idea what it is.
We think it is so unusual.
It weighs about 43 pounds and measures:
27" length, 8.5" tall and the mouth is 5.5".
It appears to be glass. Light blue, clear and cream colors.
There is an indentation on the top of each side- like perhaps thumbs would go if being carried.
Considering it is so heavy, it must've not been moved too many times.
There are a few lines like maybe it is from a mold.

It has a 2-3" residue in the bottom. Dirty and dusty. We thought it might be an ikebana vase, incense burner or some kind of ceremonial vessel.

Thank you for any info.

It looks like a first class translucent toilet bowl.

I am serious. If you would go to Bali. . Ubud.. to the restaurant over a small stream. They have a toilet like no other one.filled with Orchids and other tropical flower, even a rich man would have trouble duplicating that restroom. Your bowl would fit right in. .
PS.. some readers may remember that unusual spot.

I checked out photos of luxury bathrooms in Bali and Ubud. Nice, for sure.
The size of this item does not make sense for a toilet.
The top measures 5.5” across with an opening of only 3" that graduates to 2” and it is 8.5” tall. And there is no hole for a drain.
Thanks for turning me on to Ubud. Beautiful area.
