This vase is 4" high and 2.75" in diameter, with a flat ground, polished base. It is thick, heavy glass, so possibly meant to do double duty as a paperweight. It is clear glass, the white in the images are reflections. It retains its original label, but it is very worn. It is still possible to read the name of the company, but under that it once read "Craft glass of Japan". I was surprised to find no Sugahara glass on CW, as I have been looking for a couple of examples for a few months. Sugahara was founded in 1932 and is still in business, still making glass, but its products are a bit expensive. This vase is not in their current catalog. It was also made in opalescent glass.
