    Often when trolling through various Japanese sites I see vases of this type but as yet have not identified the maker.

    A typical Japanese shape and size (17cm) it is made from a pale green glass mottled with silver flakes, and then overlaid by dark red streaks.

    Flame finished rim and polished base.

    Typically it is unsigned and has no sticker. Like much Japanese hand made pottery, glass artists generally rely on the co-box and leaflet to identify their works, so once these are missing it can be difficult (without lots of knowledge) to identify the artist.

      I knew this was yours as soon as I saw it.
    2. racer4four racer4four, 6 years ago that good or bad? Shady photos gave it away, or the glass?
      Thanks Fort.
    3. Ivonne Ivonne, 6 years ago
      Isn't it a bit a Kralik like? It was my first association
      The vase is certainly another beauty in your collection!
    4. racer4four racer4four, 6 years ago
      I thought the decor a bit Kralik too Ivonne but it's not my area of knowledge so didn't want to say it! You can because you know more than me!
      Thanks for the love.
      It's interesting because the Japanese have collected alot of glass but early Bohemian has not been their thing. That may be because until recently the Japanese have not been keen on "second hand" goods, unless they have had a lot of cultural significance. They seem to have a lot of glass bought new since WW2 from all over the world, France, Italy, UK, USA, Scandinavia and later Bohemian.

      It's Lovely Karen! Love that red. It'll be interesting to see if its Bohemian or Japanese. Very interesting what you say about Japanese glass tastes too. I've heard from TV that they don't like to buy damaged goods, no chip or crack at all. I guess that ties into the second hand thing.
    6. Ivonne Ivonne, 6 years ago
      Thanks Karen for broadening my knowledge about Japanese glass and not just glass - very interesting!
      I guess that many artists,designers etc.gain the same or similar results independently.Perhaps there is "something" in the air at the same time :-)
    7. sklo42 sklo42, 6 years ago
      What I think is particularly attractive is the underlying it depth.
    8. Alan2310 Alan2310, 6 years ago
      What a great shape and color,,,, ;D
      I love it..
    9. surfdub66 surfdub66, 6 years ago
      Beautiful ;-)
    10. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      It looks heavy KAREN.
    11. Rick55 Rick55, 6 years ago
      I'm in love with this Karen!! It definitely has a Kralik look...
    12. racer4four racer4four, 6 years ago
      Thanks again Ivonne. I learn lots here from others on CW so it's good to think I can offer some knowledge too.

      Yeah Peggy the underlying glass is very textured both physically and visually. Thanks !

      Thanks Alan, SD and Rick. You guys always give me such positive feedback and have good taste yourselves (I think :) ) so it's always good!!

      Thanks Kevin. Being Japanese, yes it's heavy....well much heavier than the Bohemians would do this style. Totally different technique used I think to get this result. It's 1.5kg.

    13. fortapache fortapache, 6 years ago
      I recognized the glass as Japanese. Looks like a good piece so it is all good;

      Thanks as well Inky!!
    16. Vintagefran Vintagefran, 6 years ago
      1.5kg! It IS heavy.

      No idea -- but Stunning !!!

      I would lean a bit towards Murano as there are other Murano Glass makers not as well known.

      Also Karen ( a bit off topic ) but "GIULIO RADI" ( Murano Art Glass). IMHO, they could fool me for some Japanese ( Kamei ) Glass. TO ME, they have a bit of that flair.......?? What do you think??
    18. racer4four racer4four, 6 years ago
      Thanks Rose!

      I had never heard of Giulio Radi before - nice work!
    19. AnneLanders AnneLanders, 6 years ago
      Stunning, don't know how I missed it.last week.
      I thoughts you'd bout Kralik or Loetz.
      Well done, great purchase
    20. racer4four racer4four, 6 years ago
      Style is certainly a bit Kralik - it's just about 10x their weight!
      Thanks Anne.
