This is my latest vase from Japan. Identified by the seller as an Iwata, and I have no reason to dispute that.
The inner layer is white pulegoso glass (a Toshichi favourite) with an intense cranberry layer around the base. The outer layer is clear glass and three amber glass ribs have been applied and crimped.
It has a bit of a Beranek feel to it I think, but with some Japanese style to give it a different look. I'm pretty happy with it!
I would date this to around the 1960s.
