This bowl is 6.5" high x 8" top diameter x 3" bottom diameter. Not an exciting color or style, actually more workmanlike, but with a great label, the original box, packing material and stickers on the box. A good piece for reference and it is a good size. It is even larger than the Hineri bowl I recently posted though not quite as thick and heavy.
This one was $13, so that leaves me a total of $19 to spend on one more piece of labelled Japanese craft glass. So there are good deals on labeled Japanese art glass in the U. S. of A. and it may not be as hard as I feared to find unlabelled but recognizable Japanese craft glass in thrift shops. Yay! Well, "Yay" when I find one more labelled piece...
I think several of the pieces I have found in my $100 challenge have been by makers who are now defunct. Is that right, Karen? If so, who are the makers that are still in business? Did China kill Japanese art glass?
