    Probably 1960s and one from Tajima's range of very colourful and textured vessels. Note their typical birdbath base.

    I usually see these in vases so when I spotted this bowl at a recent vintage fair I happily bought it.

    It makes me think of pineapples.

    Height 16cm width 18cm

      Many thanks Master.

      Mike it was very much a style I guess at that time. It's a nice piece ! Thanks!!

      Thanks Sean - the search never stops.

      JB I am always learning about the little known Japanese glass and glad to pass on what I find. I appreciate your appreciation, thanks!

      Out of all of your examples Karen, this one is definitely my favorite! Of course you know how much I love texture, and this one is over the top with all of those pine needles and the scalloped rim. Also, I love the shade of yellow (amber?) and how it transitions from bottom to top!

      Rick I'm sure you should have a job describing glass - always on the button!
      It is more yellow than amber IRL, and I do love the sharp needles against the scalloped rim!

      This one is interesting. Looks like it's influence was a pineapple! And I love your rollie pollie guy too!!!

      Pineapple yeah. Thanks Sue.
      Remember those dishes where that scooped out a halved pineapple and coated the diced flesh with coconut and mint and served it in the pineapple body? Maybe it was a 60s Aussie thing. Anyway, this reminds me of it.
      I have never found out about that kokeshi - one day I will bother :)
