These are my other two vases in this Multi Glass range.
The taller green vase is three sided in a very Multi shape, with it's very large clear wings surrounding the internal green and millefiori. I love how the wings swirl from the base . The rim is typical Multi too with it's swooping drops moving to quite pointed tips.
The blue vase is not a shape I see very often from Multi, although if I ever see a Japanese vase that rises from a narrower base to a bulb Multi is always my first thought. This is a most beautiful vase with it's purplish blue into clear, and the orange/yellow millefiori making a beautiful contrast. It is also thickly cased with vertical ribs twisting around the body and flattening at the rim.
I can reliably date these millefiori vases to the early 1980s, although I don't know who designed them.
I find them joyful and beautiful, and I really marvel at the skill in managing their production.
Green vase is 28cm high
