    I purchased this vase from Japan and was advised by the seller that it was produced locally but he could not remember the maker.

    Cameo glass has been popular in Japan for a long time and I see a lot for sale there.
    The typical Galle copies and derivatives are evident but so are many others, like this one.

    It's a very attractive sand worked glass vase and very well made.
    For me it has a very Japanese shape and the style and scale of the picture feel Japanese too.
    It is unsigned and has no sticker.

    I can't be sure who made it, although it may be another vase by Joetsu Crystal as they have long produced quality sand blasted glass. However cameo style glass is produced by a number of well respected Japanese artists.

    Truth is though, it may not even be Japanese!

    Height 24cm (9.5in)

    I am now sure this is Japanese, and the style is very Kitaichi, so I am now attributing this to the northern glass house of Kitaichi.

      This is so pretty!
    6. AnneLanders AnneLanders, 8 years ago
      It's gorgeous Kare, how lovely are these colours..I can see why the Japanese like the style. It's reminiscent of many of Japanese also has the look of satin or Moriage without the dots..just stunning..wouldn't it be nice to be a Galle..
    7. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 8 years ago
      So very very very beautiful! I'm lost for words, don't know what to say. Wow!!
    8. racer4four racer4four, 8 years ago
      Thank you Flowergirl! This one suits your pretty name.

      Jewels pretty as always and thanks!

      Anne I'm glad you like it....and to be honest I'm glad Galle isn't on it because I could be pretty sure then it was a copy instead of an original. Thanks!

      Lovely compliment Elisabethan.! I'm glad you see it's beauty. Thank you!

      Since I posted this I have learnt more about Japanese cameo glass and am pretty sure this is Kitaichi Glass. Karen

      Hi Karen how is the picture done is it done by sandblasting layers?
    22. racer4four racer4four, 1 year ago
      Yes, or possibly acid etching the layers. In the past Japanese cameo was done by hand and with sand, it’s likely done by stencil marking and acid now.
      This being a piece less than 20 years old and from a company not a solo artist it’s probably acid etched.
