Another ironic duo from the Japanese here - a flower vase for life and sweet smells, and a matching ashtray for death and bad odour.
I don't think they meant it that way lol!
I will hereon call it a bowl.
These were made as a pair by Koshida Glass also known as Folkcraft Glass.
I have posted some Koshida glass on CW before and these follow their style.
Moulded and then hot worked and a very distinctive way of grinding the base to leave the mould form. I'm assuming the base wells on these were very deep when moulded.
This is a favorite colour combo of theirs too.
I know they are definitely Koshida because I am a genius.
NO! scrap that.
They came in a Koshida co-box and they have stickers (that's much more believable)!
Vase 25cm (10in) high bowl 18cm (7in)
