This Kurata Craft Glass decorative plate/bowl, made for Mikasa, is 14" in diameter x 1.5" high with a 5" x 1" circular depression in the middle. It weighs over 5 lbs. There is a ground pontil mark on the bottom. This is the last of five pieces of labeled Japanese art glass for my $100 challenge and I had $19 left for the final piece. I have already bought two pieces of Kurata Craft Glass for this challenge and wanted to find a piece from another maker and was prepared for this to take some time, but the stars lined up on this one for me. I found it on ebay for $19 from a local private seller who lives a few blocks from where I had an appointment. Karma? Destiny? Blind luck?
