    This vase is about 8" high x 8" in diameter and weighs about 4.2 lbs. It was purchased directly from Japan by the seller along with several other vases, some labeled and some not. It is thought to be by Iwata Glass based on feedback from my contact in Japan, but has no label. Iwatsu and Hokuyo have also been propsed as potential makers. I guess I will just have to bide my time and wait for something similar with a label to surface. Just a bit of wear to the bottom, but otherwise mint.

      Updated images. So hard to pick images as even a slight rotation of this vase dramatically changes the colors.

      Kevin my thought is this is Hokuyo, I don't think it's Iwata.
      Whatever, the colours on black are wonderful, and the ribs and finish show just how well this Japanese glass is made.

      Thanks Karen. I am confused on this one. My dealer friend in Japan thinks it is Iwata. I need to add a new image to show the lines of this vase better. My images make it look squat, when it is not..... Keeping my eye out for something similar with a label!
