    This is not serious glass..... it is fun glass.

    1960s, probably made by Fukuoka (AKA Multi or Marti Glass).

    I have posted it in art glass however! lol

      Beautiful example Karen :)...Fun and so much more interesting to look at. I have a rather drab one in an olive bronze color with nothing in the base but a single air bubble. I've never seen one like this before.

      I missed that post of yours Bob! Thanks for being able to provide a correct time frame for them.
      I am certain these are Japanese as I have seen them with stickersand the style just speaks of Fukuoka!
      Thanks.

      Marty you may well be correct too. The Japanese were very heavily influenced (yes, at times copied) by the Italians.
