Another offering from the Japanese glass company Sanyu, circa 1980s.
If there is one thing I have found in my interest in Japanese art glass, they love their metal inclusions!
Particularly from about the 80s on, they have really liked including silver and gold flecks, and to this day much of their art glass will include gold nets or sheets.
This is a pretty vase in pink, cased in clear with clear ribs, and silver inclusions.
Not too big at 22cm (8.5in) and a measly 1.8kg.
Honesty time: My mind is being muddied by Japanese glass and at times I am having trouble deciding which is Hineri, Sanyu, Marti or Kamei. l'horreur! or katakana!
Like Bohemian glass of early last century I think there has been so much transfer of style and artists that if there is no sticker I probably should just label some of it "Japanese"!
I'm pretty sure this is Sanyu though!!
