Hello All,

I bid on this bowl a few years ago in an estate sale. I thought it was extremely unusual that there was row of pale green "raised"/protruding beads of material in the bowl. One would think when it was washed/cleaned over the years that the beads would wear down to nothing...but that is not so. The only wear is the gold around the edge of the bowl. The outside/bottom mark of the bowl says it's "Royal Hinode Nippon".

Additionally, besides the intricate gold beads in the design of the bowl, in the center/bottom of the bowl there seems to be some really unusual pinkish/white marble oval areas too...which does not seem to be painted on.

I have 2 Nippon hard cover reference books with no pics of anything like this bowl. Can anyone help guide me to what it is...and maybe a rough value? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm going nuts after spending oodles of hours searching...TIA :)

I am attaching 4 pics. This 1st one is the view of the whole bowl...
