This impressive vase arrived from Japan without any identifiers like sticker or box, but I am almost sure it is by FTG, or Fukuoka Glass.
You may recall my bird sculpture from Multi Glass and the latticino in the birds' bodies. (Multi Glass is a later name for FTG) This vase has almost identical latticino in it, and the shape of the vase itself is similar to a known FTG shape.
The ribbed handles are like some I have seen from FTG, but then Kamei also had similar handles at times.
All in all I am happy to attribute this as a probable product of Fukuoka Glass, although I can't yet definitely do so.
I would date this around 1960s, based on shape and overall design.
