So, while I was watching and re-watching the TV store scene, I noticed these things on top of the TV's visible here:

After a lot of fruitless and frustrating Google image searching, I think I've ID'ed them as a bunch of these things:

They're plastic TV lamps / souvenirs / dioramas / night lights / whatevers made in post-war Japan, 1950's to 1970's I think. The ones on screen seem to be orange plastic, and American football-shaped, but they come in other shapes and colors, too. Some are also made of glass.

Watching and re-watching the scene, I think they have clear fronts and identical innards, though what the internals are I can only guess (color photocopied Japanese magazine ads?). Maybe some of that prismatic 'hologram' tape on the sides, though I can't be sure.

And you thought the Kirin bottle was obscure. Here's your deep cut of the day.

Great find Mike! Very impressed.

I went back and had a look at my HD copy and you can clearly see the one of the dogs in this capture.

Thanks, guys.

I think I'm seeing a bonsai-style tree on the left side of the movie ones look at the one of the far left of my screencap...

I've seen other boxes like these that contain a miniature geisha doll, or a miniature scene / diorama with a tiny fake tree, pagoda, etc., so I have no way to determine what's really in them might be anything : /

I'd love to see someone mock up one of these with some bonkers scene in it tiny fake Hades landscape and the Tyrell pyramids, tiny LA city hall, etc... Bonus points for garishness ; )
