I know very little about Hasegawa Glass; they appear to be one of the many glassworks that arose in 1950s Japan and either closed or were taken over when Japan lost it's place in the Western glass market in the 70s/80s.
All of the items I have seen from them have been like this platter.
They made pressed glass with very intense patterns so that very little plain glass was left.
This platter has a complicated pattern that would have required a pretty awesome mould. Job well done.
I have seen some Kamei pressed glass very similar to Hasegawa and am trying to find out if they had a partnership of sorts. Could be slow!
