    This small bowl/ashtray is quite an early piece from Iwata Glass, and from it's documentation I think it would date to the 50s.

    The design is definitely one of Iwata Toshi's and shows his use of moulding and hot working that had such a big impact on other Japanese glass makers.

    Interestingly the pamphlet that came with the bowl and it's box shows an Iwata piece that could easily be attributed to the Czechs.
    I wouldn't mind finding an Iwata vase like that....I'm still looking!

    Bowl is 11cm wide.

      This is really pretty! My first thought was that it was Czech. I suppose because of the thickness, but of course that may not even be something to go by...still don't know much about it but it sure is beautiful!

      Very pretty indeed and gorgeous color!

      Thanks for the comments and lurve guys!
      Colour is great as you say and now every time I look at it I see a poppy Peggy.

      SUP there are lots of similarities between Czech, Japanese and Murano glass of this era.....well spotted!

      Cindy! I'm awake and have checked.
      I know that the Japanese did use uranium in some glass (but not manganese that I know of) so here I've been, running around shining my uv torch at anything I can.
      No, this doesn't glow. Very few of my stuff did!
      Yours must be like you.......SPECIAL!
    13. racer4four racer4four, 6 years ago
      Yeah very close. Mine definitely doesn't have that manganese lip though.
      We'll spotted.

      Maybe, or not! Sorry, hard to tell from a photo and this sort of hot worked style was popular everywhere.
