    This vase is about 4.75" high and about 3.25" wide at its widest. It is transparent in any light and has "Made in Japan" acid etched on the bottom. It is a variation of a vase which I posted a few weeks ago as an example of generic markings on Japanese art glass imported into the U.S. Both vases are shown in image #4. I post the second vase to show the variation in execution of these small vases, though these are roughly similar in size and shape. Both are very nice quality for such small pieces, but probably present no clues for possible identification of the glass house which made them.
