Like most Japanese glass companies Kitaichi have a long history and make a wide variety of glass. These three objects are typical of their moulded glass pieces, with their twisted ribs, hand worked lips, and handles.
The amber vase is a lovely pot bellied shape and a good size for flowers at 22cm. You can see on it one of Kitaichi's stickers, showing the head and shoulders of a man, in a big hat, and holding a bowl.
The red pitcher is a shape I have seen here in Australia but whether the ones I have seen here were by Kitaichi I am not sure. It has a typically Japanese shaped foot, lovely flared pouring lip and nicely made handle. It is 23cm.
The blue vase is a big girl at 28cm, and with her hands on hips handles she's got some attitude.
