White is a relatively uncommon colour for Japanese glass but they have and do use it from time to time. This group has two older (1970s) vases and a newer (2000s) vase.
The two larger vases are both labeled Kamei and show a similar style glass necklace. The larger vase is iridescent, the smaller not, but both are quite lovely. They are thickly cased in clear glass, and quite heavy.
The smaller vase has a TGK Pine label, and although the name is familiar to me I know nothing about the company behind it. It's a little sweetie, with a satin finish, and has some little ceramic flowers glued to the front. I've seen this style of vase from Pine before but in different shapes, and all were white and with little flowers.
The tallest vase is 25cm, smallest 11cm.
