    I've had this vase a few years now and have only very recently identified it as Japanese.

    To be honest, for ages I thought it Czech, but I have learned heaps about Japanese glass in the last six months or so, and yep, even when I didn't know it was Japanese it pulled me in.

    This is likely Kamei:
    Purple glass - check
    Thick clear casing - check
    Casing has been ribbed and twisted - check
    Ground base - check
    Thick hot finished rim - check

    It's not very big at 17cm (6.5in) but heavy 1.2kg

      Beautiful! I couldn't be a purist, I love colors too much, all of them. :)

      I know you both are getting in to coloured glass and I agree this purple is lovely! The more colour in glass the more I like it!
      Thanks Melanie and Katherine.
