    This bowl is 15" (38 cm) long x 7" (18 cm) high x 6" (15 cm)wide. The bottom is smooth, so it was probably made by swinging hot glass in a mold. The seller identified it as by Kurata, since it came from a large collection of Iwata and Kurata glass, but I am certain that it is Iwata. For some reason the seller listed the dimensions almost twice its actual size, but I still got a really good deal on it. This ebay auction shows a very similar piece that bears an Iwata label.

    I also found several other similar Iwata pieces that show the clear edges and foamy glass texture.

      @Mrstyndall - Thanks for your comment! I like that shade of blue a lot!

      @Anik - Thanks for your comment, Anik. It is so large that I may need to give it a room of its own!

      @Rulandma - Thanks for your comment. It is a peach!
