    I am always amazed at the degree of critical observation our Bohemian glass collectors here apply to their glass, and the evidence based attributions that result from their efforts. So well done!

    I don't do that! (very much anyway)

    Fortunately for me these vases have been easy to identify, mainly because of stickers. Gotta love a sticker.

    The two blue vases are sisters, Japanese, and from the Yamaguchi Glass C0mpany. I have seen this same vase labelled Tajima Glass, and in my notes somewhere I know I have a direct link between Tajima and Yamaguchi.
    More on that another day.

    The green vase, despite it's apparent similarity, is Taiwanese.
    The cone shaped frills are clumsy compared to the other vases, the glass is this plain murky green, and there are swirls and bubbles throughout the glass.

    The bases are similar with a typical Tajima style birdbath, but the Taiwanese vase had a very rough finish and the rim of the birdbath is unevenly moulded. Both styles have hot formed necks, but again the Taiwanese is not as refined as the Tajima.

    My studies have discovered a brief note about Tajima and their association with the early Taiwanese glass industry and I wonder if this vase is a result of that, or did the Taiwanese just copy what was a very successful design for Tajima.

      Yes,stickers are crucial!They might appear more often :-)

      I don't delve into the mechanics of a piece of glass or crystal. I either like it or I don't. There's such a thing as too much scrutiny! :-)
    4. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 7 years ago
      I love how you love your glass. If one piece works with another that you have, that's good enough and all there is to it! And they always look amazing together. I agree with Rose, you have been teaching us so much that it's fun to look for when out there pondering. Very often when I'm out there, I think of you and wonder what you would think of a piece. It's good for the heart! lol and stickers are the best, you're right ;)

      Yay for the stickers! Thanks all for responding and loving.

      I can't help feeling they look like ladies waiting to be asked to dance in days gone by :)

      Well thank you for relieving my mind, Karen, I thought it was unusual to see a glass grouping of yours that didn't appeal to me. That green glass was clashing against the other two beauties, after reading your explanation I see why. Def not on a par with the Japanese glass. Thanks for sharing! :)
    9. racer4four racer4four, 7 years ago
      Such a great critical eye you have too Katherine! The Taiwanese got better after this bit Japanese is still my Fave! Thanks.

      The difference between graceful and gawky is easy enough to see, Karen, but thank you for the compliment, I am honored and give you all the credit. You have taught me to appreciate Japanese glass, I look forward to owning one like yours some day. :)
