The seller of one the items which I purchased using my March auction budget couldn't find the item after the auction, so, after he/she refunded my money (about $20), I had enough left to buy this odd little Iwata bud vase. It is 9.25" high x 4.25 widest diameter, with partial label. The pontil was fairly deeply ground. The swirled glass is bit rough, rough enough that in a couple of places there is a sharp edge where the colors transition. I've not been able to find another example of this label, which is in pretty shabby condition with just enough left to prove the vase is by Iwata. Hoping Karen can expound on the label and style of this vase. Thanks, Karen!
