    I have amassed quite a bit of Iwata Glass, from all members of the family, but most is by the founder, Toshichi Iwata.
    This is a very pretty vase and it shows some very common design elements of Toshichi's.
    The first is the glass colour; he enjoyed pink.
    Second is the layers of glass he has used here. First layer is pink pulegoso, then a clear case, then the almost white trail.
    Third is the shape; with a flowing freehand body and a pretty frilled lip.
    Fourth is size; at 25 cm and 1.8 kilos it's not petite.

    I actually purchased this in Japan last year and lugged it around, so it's fortunate I still love it after all that effort!

      Thanks Thomas. You: music, me:glass. As the witch said "I've been watching you...."

      Glad you liked it Ken! Thanks mate.

      It's funny Scott, I am not a girl into pink, no pink clothes, ever. But these pink glasses I like. Glad you do too!Although you might like a bit of pink clothing, I know my hubby does :)
