    This piece is so unlike most other Dolphin Glass I have seen.
    Glass exported by Dolphin is usually with a black or red ground, with black, yellow and red spatters, and clear cased. Almost always they are urn shaped.

    This is different because of it's very vase-like shape, the red is very bright, it has ribs, it has mica scattered through it, and it has a hot worked rim.
    It is clear cased however.

    Perhaps this was not such an unusual style for Dolphin; perhaps it was a style just for domestic sale and not for export.

    It definitely is Dolphin Glass, the label appears original.

      It is a rather striking piece. The mica is a nice touch.

      Thanks CA. Dolphin were a very good glass company in Japan that seemed to have stopped production in the 1980s, although not very well known.
