Scandi look vase with Japan label
« on: September 22, 2008, 04:29:27 PM »
Thought I'd share this interesting (to me ;D) vase.  Rightly or wrongly, I've always associated this type as being of Scandinavian origin and know several companies made them.  However, I came across this one today with its original label "HAND BLOWN / Lefton's Japan / GLASS WORKS".

I've included a pic. of the base as well.

Does anyone know if this could be the same company shown here?  China products were made in occupied Japan, but I can't find anything about glass products...?

I think the label is from the same company as these ones...
