Some of the gals from Girls und Panzer would tell you that tanks can be pretty cute. And what better way to gussy one up than to use it as a vase? Made using traditional Kasama-yaki pottery techniques, heralding from Kasama, Ibaraki Prefecture, the tank is a reference to a scene with series protagonist Hana Isuzu, who is highly skilled in ikebana, or Japanese flower arrangement.




Only 100 were made, and even at a retail price of 12,960 yen (about US$108), pre-orders filled up pretty quickly, so if you want one, you’ll have to keep your eye on auction sites.
