    This vase is 9.5" high x 6" at widest diameter and weighs 4 lbs 4 ounces. It has a Kamei label but is not numbered. This is another aventurine on cobalt vase, similar to Karen's posting below. This one is interesting as, judging by the bottom, there is also a red/orange layer. This vase had cork pads attached to the bottom so there is no wear to the bottom or label. I got a good price on this one as there is a smallish scuff on the vase. No idea who actually made this vase. It was purchased before I found my Edler vase.

    I think I have finally been cured of buying on ebay as I have recently been screwed by two sellers, left negative feedback for both and somehow, without any contact from ebay, both sellers had my completely factual, professionally worded negative feedback removed. Both sellers violated some basic ethical standards, but had thousands of reviews, which I assume is why they were able to get my negative feedback removed. Ebay is apparently not interested in protecting their buyers or in the integrity of their sellers. Very disappointing as I have been on ebay for 20 years and have over 1000 transactions. I will save some money, I guess.

      This is a really great example of these aventurine vases from Kamei, Kevin.
      I just love the shape of it, and the aventurine is so dense!
      Photos are great too.
      I used to think I knew who made these but like lots of my ideas on Japanese glass I have removed that ID and now just say don't know!

      I meant to also say that this vase is such a good example of the Japanese interpretation of glass and how it fits with their style.
      It could almost be pottery and the shape is certainly a traditional one, but it is the surface texture which shows their culture. Because of pottery the Japanese love surface texture and subtle colouring changes over it (think Bizen ware) and this is a good example of that.
      The Italians would not have done aventurine quite like this.
