    This 1950s vase has been made by FTG or Fukuoka Glass Japan.
    FTG, Fukuoka, later became Marti Glass and are now known as Multi Glass.

    It's a very large vase at 30cm (12in) high and has been made from a mix of brown and amber and clear glass. This tri-lobate shape was very popular in Japan in the 50s and 60s and most glass houses had a go at it.

    But you know the most awesome thing about this vase is the co-box it came in!
    The box is made from plywood, covered in a grey fabric and with metal hinges and clasp.
    It is VERY big....34cm (13.5in) long, 24cm (9.5in) wide, and 26cm (10in) deep.
    When I opened the cardboard box from the post and saw the co-box I had to laugh!

    Awesome.

      Thanks Manikin for your loving comment.

      You too Kevin - the packaging is so great isn't it!

      Val I keep all the boxes but even if this vase broke (the horror!) I would keep the box!

      Hey thanks too Sue! A beautiful vase in a fantastic box - what's left to want!
