Another piece of glass from OTK, stickered to the base "OTK Glass Japan".
You have probably seen these before....a poor attempt I think at copying the fazzoletto and swan vases from Venice.
The red of this vase is a most unattractive colour, nearly orange, and the shape is almost scary. The red has been cased in white internally and then it all has been cased in clear. Ribs have been moulded into the wings and tail before hot working, and the head has been formed after making the neck. The base has been hot finished.
Not well made - the colours and casing are uneven and the shape lends itself to no real use, practical or aesthetic. The photos actually make it look better than it is lol.
You've probably guessed it's not a favorite!
