    I bought this and noted it did have a label buried under masking tape someone HAD put on it. Each glass wing extension has a *notch* in it.

    On the bottom was a heavy masking tape. You can see in the middle of it (Pic 1) and the oval label was under it. So I did peel back the masking tape in which pulled the whole label up with the tape. I slowly picked the label out from the white tape goo and it ended up with the GOO all over in (Pic 2).

    So I took a wooden toothpick and slowly worked the goo (like snot) off the label (pic 3) was like Major Brain er-r-r-r-r...... Glass Surgery, lol. The label just says JAPAN on it, and is Red oval foil with gold lettering and a gold border

    So since this is not a plastic label, or says "Made in Japan" but only Japan and a Foil label -- I would say this be a older Japan Art Glass (maybe 1950's or 1960's era). The label is a small oval *foil* label (red and gold) with just Japan on it.

    So the ID is confirmed on this, just thought I would post as a FYI....and how I dug the label out of the Goo.....LOL....all in the name to ID it!!

      It's surprising to find out how much of these Glass bowls and Ashtrays were actually made in Japan......I have to readjust my thinking when I see a similar unmarked item. BOB

      Looks like a "splash" of green! Nice. Oh, and ~better you than me~ having to remove "snot" from the label :)
