This vase is 9.5" high x 6.5" widest diameter and weighs a hair over 6 lbs. It has a Sanyu label near the top which is upside down. The bottom of the vase is ground flat and polished. I have seen three similar vases in this color combination, including this one.
This vase was bought as a gift by a man for his wife ca 1980, both have since passed and their son sold it to me. I have wanted one of these for some time but they are usually pretty expensive and not common in the U.S. The price and condition were right so I finally got one. It was on an online auction site for a very short time when one of my saved searches alerted me to it. There is minor scratching to bottom, but otherwise it seems to be in mint condition, and probably has been sitting in the same spot for the past 40 years. I have noticed a couple of small bubbles in the glass.
I have been having allergy issues so been offline for a few days and may be a bit slow to respond to comments. The drugs I have to take are almost as bad as the allergies, so I put off taking them as long as possible.
