Shop Enchanting Vintage Chinese Fish Bowls

Whimsical color schemes, hand-drawn birds that seem ready to fly off their post, delicate brushstrokes: our ceramic Chinese fish bowl inventory is full of exquisitely rendered designs that will provide a charming touch to any garden, porch, or interior space. Chinese fish bowls have a long history. Beginning around 1400, the Chinese began designing decorative porcelain pots that they would use to host goldfish inside their houses. The idea was that fish would be on temporary display in these pots when company was over, or for special occasions, and once the event was over, the bowls would be emptied and the goldfish would be returned to their outdoor pond.

Elevate Your Garden with Antique Chinese Fish Bowls

Peruse a veritable ocean’s worth of vintage Chinese fish bowl options, each one more delightful than the last. Chinese fishbowl planters, which adhere to styles as diverse as the designers and design fans who lovingly collect them: mid-century modern, boho, Hollywood Regency, traditional, and more, also span colors. Though tradition might dictate blues and whites as the de facto color scheme, our bevy of Chinese fish bowl pieces actually features an expansive range of color stories: pinks and greens play particularly well together, in our humble opinion. Products from different eras are also visible here, including decorative bowls of all kinds that have made their way from 1900s-era Japan and 20th-century China, among other decorative lineages.
