This glass head from Japan came with a Kamei sticker, which probably dates it to no later than 1990.
I have never seen anything from Japan like it before.
It's made from a teal green glass, blown into a two piece mould. The walls of the glass are only about 1cm thick, and there is a very noticeable mould join line around the head. It has been given a satin finish, and unusually it appears to have been acid etched, not sand blasted, which is the usual Japanese method.
It's not the best made piece of glass with that obvious seam, and that seems so weird to me, as usually Japanese glass is extremely well finished.
Despite that, my lady has her own beauty and grace.
