    This is a lovely little millefiore pitcher from FTG Japan that shows great technique.
    The millefiore tokens have been so well stacked,a very fine white inner case, and the whole has been clear cased, shaped, and a handle added.
    I would date this no later than 1970 because of the base sticker style.
    FTG changed their branding to Multi Glass very early in the 1970s.
    Height: 23cm

      Thanks Dean. FTG Multi are the only big Japanese brand I know of that used millefiore, but it is an unusual one!

      Thanks Ken, so glad you love it so much!

      I was very happy to find it Phil, thanks for the love and comment.

      DJ, glad to share, we all learn from each other :)

      Orange is a much underrated colour Jenni lol. Thanks mate!

      Ivonne, thanks. The handle is very fine, I am reluctant to hold onto it. I'm sure it would be Ok, just..... you know!

      Unusual isn't it Peggy! Thanks :))

      interesting millefiore design

      much more ORANGE than anything from Murano ;-)
    14. racer4four racer4four, 3 months ago
      Aaaah orange, not often seen in Murano glass, adored by the Japanese.
      Thanks Modfather.

      The color orange is a rarity in many forms... including jewelry.
      Beautiful vase of “A THOUSAND FLOWERS “!
