 Sold / Reference 


A multicoloured cased glass vase, made in Japan by the Iwatsu glassworks, part of their Hineri range. Often mistaken for Murano glass, but items from this range can be found with labels that read "IW, Hineri, Made in Japan". Often these were exported by a wholesaler / distributer named Kamei, and are sometimes labelled "Kamei, Made in Japan". This bowl has a different import label which reads "Best Art Glass, Foreign". Consists of multicoloured swirls encased in clear glass. Has a shallow concave polished pontil to the base.


Measures approx 6.25 inches tall by 7 inches in diameter at widest point.


Excellent condition, no chips or cracks.
