    This vase is 7" high x 1.75" diameter top x 3" diameter bottom. It is unmarked. It has a very precise circular grind to remove a pontil and a ground bottom. I believe that the color is colored glass not flashing or an applied finish. I could not scratch it off. The base is clear, though, so it may be cased glass. It is a fairly thick, heavy vase which shows little or no wear. The clear glass conducts the orange color to the top into the rim. There are quite a few small bubbles in the glass. It was a GW $.99 find which I passed by a couple of times until I ran out hope of finding any really striking pieces, which led me to taking a longer look at it. It was very dirty and smudged, which hid the vibrancy of the orange glass. It is actually a pretty nice piece of glass. No guess as to the maker.

      This is possibly Japanese Kevin, but lies in the land of good generic glass that was sold worldwide in the later 20th C The base is a bit of a Japanese thing with a concave pontil grind, and a good finish on the base and a proper polish and chamfered edge. They also made LOTS of orange glass.
      Sorry I can’t pinpoint a maker, but my guess is Japanese.
      You seem to be getting an eye for it!

      Thanks for your comments Karen! The way I learned about fine art paintings was to look at a lot of art and also to buy examples online that I could not find locally. Initially, I bought some bad art. Luckily my period of buying bad art was fairly brief, but then I bought a lot of art that I liked and was of good quality. Now I have about 2000 paintings that I love and wondering how I am going to find a plot large enough to be buried in with it all. I am finally starting to sell a bit from my collection when contacted by someone who is interested in a particular work, if their reason for wanting it is compelling enough. Trying to not repeat that scenario with Japanese art glass and buy less and buy what I like most.

      I hear you Kevin. I started slowly as a glass collector mainly with Scandinavian glass, moved to Czech then started discovering Japanese glass. There is so little info out there research that became overwhelming. I have made some great mistakes and big discoveries on the way. I bought a lot of pieces just for research and probably now have over 1000 pieces, which is overwhelming. I find it hard to sell but am starting to now move on some stuff. The market is not great and because I had to import lots of my glass it has been an investment I cannot recover. Oh well. Collecting and profit do not go hand in hand as you probably know .
      Just be aware some of my older posts opined things I may no longer agree with!
