    I was very fortunate last week to acquire this set of Edo Kiriko glass online at an excellent price.

    This pair of goblets and bowl have been made by Hanashyo, sometimes spelt Hanasho, a company that has been making Edo Kiriko since 1947 .
    The company employs around 20 people who mark out, hand cut with diamond wheels, and finish by buffing, as is the Edo Kiriko way.

    Every design on these pieces has been done by hand and incorporate registered Edo Kiriko patterns. Hanashyo have registered four of their own patterns which they use with traditional patterns to make the design.

    The design on these pieces is based around lotus. I particularly love the bowl, where the lotus seem to float in a pool of water. When you look at the back of the bowl you can see the battuto-like cutting which gives the watery look. You can also see how fine the cutting is, particularly on the Itotiki (chrysanthemum) Connection pattern.

    If you want more info about Hanashyo or Edo Kiriko I will post some links in comments.

      Thanks Thomas....appreciate the love and comment.

      The bowl is spectacular I agree Blade. I really love Edo Kiriko. No other cut glass is quite the same and it really speaks of the Japanese pride in mastering detailed and time consuming hand work.

      Wow! This tiny cutting in Japanese pattern is stunning!!!

      Incredible craftsmanship.

      Kyra -I can't imagine the tiny wheels and skill needed to achieve those patterns. Thanks for the love.

      Ta Dean. I was lucky to get this lot. Edo Kiriko is expensive, as you can imagine with the work in it.

      Ken - nah wasn't with the set! Never mind. I'm glad you enjoy the beauty - thanks.

      Thanks Martika for the love and comment.

      Very true Gillian - incredible! Thanks.

      I like this next to my free form Japanese glass....two very different things speaking from the same culture.
