    This ashtray is 4.75" in diameter and 2" high. It has its original label. It is fairly thin glass. This is the only example that I could find of a kiriko ashtray or other item by Sanyu, or Narumi. If not labeled, it would probably be identified as Bohemian. I did find a similarly shaped ashtray in blue, but the design of the glass relieve was different and it was just labeled "Made in Japan". I found many examples of free form Sanyu ashtrays. At least, I think this is kiriko glass. I have never cared much for kiriko glass so have not studied it to any extent. If this is kiriko, I think this might be an example of Satsuma versus Edo kiriko glass as the colored glass layer seems pretty thick. Maybe Karen can provide some input!

      This is way too pretty to snub out nasty cigarette butts in...no way!
      ( doesn’t look used, thank goodness)
      Love the color!

      Thanks Ms.CrystalShip! I agree, no ashes will live in this bowl and I don't think it has ever been used for that purpose.
