In the 1950s and 60s Japanese art glass could well have been judged not just by beauty but by size. The art glass movement deliberately made things large to be the focal point of an otherwise pared back room.
Case in point: this vase by Marti Glass.
My lego lady gives height scale, my weighing scales groaned and spat out 4.3kg.
I do love the decor of this one with the oranges and greens and black, and the deliberate use of random bubbles.
The clear case is a tad thick, yes?
