This little vase is about 5.5" high x 4" wide at the top. Just starting to acquire some decent looking glass that was definitely made in Japan (label!) to start getting a better feel for the range of colors and finishes. I've been looking at a lot of images of labeled Japanese glass from different manufacturers, which is great for learning shapes, but not so good for tactile learning and colors. With American glass I can usually pick it up, feel the weight and textures and look at the actual colors and have a pretty good idea if it is good glass, or not, and who/when it was made. I will certainly never be as good with Japanese glass, or probably any other country's glass, but I don't know a better way to start learning. Going to try to not to end up with a bunch of junk, but..... I'll try to spare my CW compatriots my worst learning mistakes. This one is at least pretty, though!
