I have so far found no history of Yanagawa Glassworks, but looking at this vase I believe it is a pre WW2 production, possibly even before WW1.
Yanagawa is a region in Fukuoka prefecture, but I have found no link to Fukuoka Glass (FTG). FTG was established in Fukuoka City and there may be a crossover, but my FTG history research makes no mention of it.
Looking at the sticker I think that T.Yanagawa is a person's name, and so this could actually have nothing to do with Yanagawa the place.
I need to search Japan's trade mark history for more info.
This is a simple, thin walled vase with small engraved leaves and a golden, metallic coating. The sticker is paper, and I think the company logo is so charming with the dog and it's name tag TY.
