This glass fish bowl is quirky because it's shaped like its inhabitant. The glass is blown to mimic a large gold fish; the bowl even has fins and a tail on which the bowl stands. Most fish bowls have an opening at the top, but this giant glass fish has an opening on an angle, where its mouth would be. In it is a live orange fish swimming around. This type of fish home is both cute and peculiar.
Self-referential packaging and design usually allows consumers to identify with the product instantly, but this fish-shaped fish bowl may throw some people off. When emptied, you'd probably guess it's merely a decorative glass piece or a vase.
