    I have a few of these sushi plates from Kurata and although I don't use them on the dinner table often, they do seem to lay around here a lot collecting keys, and fruit, and things dug out of pockets like valve shims and lock tabs (yep, there is a mechanic living here!).

    The green and yellow one shown here is almost square and has a moulded bottom surface with a ripple like texture. There is noticeable working to the edge and either this was made in a ringless mould or the glass was placed on a textured surface and later worked.
    I have seen this particular pattern plate also in yellow and clear glass.

    The red and clear plate is more rectangular and has a dimple finish on the back. Again the edge shows tool marks from being worked. I have only seen this pattern in red and clear.

    I believe the yellow/green plate dates from the 1960s, and from it's box the red/clear later than that.

    They are both around the 25cm mark in width.

      Love them.....the texture, the randomness of colour and shape!
    4. NevadaBlades, 5 years ago
      The green and yellow one for me, please. [;>)

      The dew like clear and sanguine red appeals to me. :)

      Thanks Peggy. The texture is clever and the curve of the plates allows light to shine through well so you see it!

      Dew- great descriptor Mike. The clear glass looks very much like water and I too love the contrasting red. Thanks mate!

      I've told you before and I'll tell you again, I love your Japanese glass Karen! Although the green one is very nice, the first one is everything I love about art glass; great colors, all those dimples that look like so many bubbles and the rough, hand tooled edge... Love it!

      It is a great piece of art glass Rick, and seemingly very simple.
      I really appreciate your appreciation of my Japanese glass. I feel a bit of a lone wolf at times - I have not found anyone in cyber world yet who has as much of it as me and as a consequence I have no-one really to bounce my ideas and attributions off.
      I'm sure there are other Japanese glass collectors somewhere!

      Theses are beautiful! How great would it be to serve Sushi on those beauties.
      I don't see this type of glass here, thank-you for sharing!
