    This monster vase (35cm) has a very alien look to it I think.

    Green into amber glass with silver inclusions is normal for Tusgaru Beauty Idro .
    It's the size and shape! BIG, and from a round base it grows menacingly to the three pronged neck.

    Something from Day of the Triffids?

      Sorry Karen, just yanking your chain. Love this one despite the questionable colour combination. :-) W

      I'm with antiquerose on this...the glass looks like an interpretation of the plumage of a thrush...very delicate and pleasing. Do you have any idea of its age? Peggy

      I know you well enough to not take offence there W!
      Thanks for the yank, the backdown and the luuurrve.

      Thank you polite Peggy!!
      In fact this is not very old - maybe last 10 years or so. Tsugaru Beauty Vidro still make this design (don't you love their name?!). All made for local sales however - I bought direct from Japan - and the Japanese are pretty keen on this style.

      Do find that it moves around the house from day to day ?? :)

      It does, it does! At first I thought it was the kids but now I have find small drag marks. I think the little pod I found under the chair yesterday might morph into another any night soon. Strange whipping noises have been heard in the early hours and I worry that if it's not a triffid it is from the Little Shop of Horrors instead. What should I do Mike? I can't break it based on a premise, but if I leave it we might be in imminent danger!!! What to do...what to do....remember Japan has spawned lots of creatures....Godzilla, Anguirus, Mothra, King Ghidora, never stops!!!

      It's definitely a very cool looking vase!

      You could lock it in a cage.....Just keep it away from radiation sources :)
