    racer4four
    (570 items)

    Life has been busy for me of late and CW has fallen through the cracks, but I intend to keep up better from now on!
    I have to thank my CW friends for prompting me (thanks Jenny, Fran, Harry, Maren, and Lisa).

    Anyway, this vase is a recent arrival, and I purchased it mainly because I wanted to determine it's manufacturer. I have established from my research and Japan visit that Kamei were a wholesaler, not a maker, and I can't always tell who made their items. I like to try!

    This vase appears to have been made from an amber glass with red swirled through it, and has then been cased in more amber glass. I believe that it was made by Multi Glass. The shape is the first clue because Multi were more likely to make a shape that had it's widest portion in the top third, and the square but not wide ribs are also a Multi cue. The rim has had an ugly blow but the rounded shape and glass width is good for Multi too. It's no secret that I can get things wrong, so it's not a definite attribution!

    Nice height at 22cm, and typically for glass of the 60s/70s, it's a weighty piece.
