Looks very like pieces seen made by Hineri, Japan in the 60s-70s, but I can't find anything out about Hineri.  They used paper labels "Hand Craft Hineri Glass Made In Japan" according to my jottings - made a long time ago.

It definitely looks similar to Hineri to me too, Anne, but that's just an impression and I don't know much about it except what's flashed past on eBay. I wish I could interest my brother in glass - he lives in Japan and is fluent in the language, but is more interested in women, alcohol and martial arts!

Some examples of Japanese freeform glass: Hineri vase a bit like Dan's vase, a really amazing Hineri thing, slightly iridescent Hineri, Sanyu, ugly vase thingyOread and unknown (pretty sure that Oread is Japanese as well), a Rossini swan.

Just for reference, here are a couple of glass pieces, labelled Sanyu and Rainbow Glass, both stating "Made in Japan". Sanyu is likely to be a company name, whereas Rainbow Glass is probably either an importer's label or a local brand name.

Thanks for all the excellent info on hineri id bet its made by them or someone very close, Amases me just how fast some people can navigate the web and find snippets of really usefull information on so many differing subjects thanks for all your time. I didnt like the vase out of the box but after a nice soapy wash and a spot light behind it im quite taken with it. so it might stay for a while!! Im trying to amass a collection cheaply this was my most expensive peice by a long shot so far, im getting pieces from all over the place but i guess thats the way it goes you dont just go out and find pieces by daum,tiffany, in charity shops that know one wants anymore,  but i guess thats the fun in this hobby you just never know whats going too turn up..good hunting all

Let's see what Jindra says before jumping to conclusions though! It might well still be Czech - but we shouldn't discount other possibilities.

Buying the glass you like is a good way to collect. I wouldn't want to pay too much postage, though, if the glass isn't a fair investment. I think the best advice for someone building a collection is to zero in on what he/she likes best and buy a good book. For example, a person interested in learning Murano could buy Leslie Pina's Italian Glass Century 20. It isn't very expensive and is an excellent primer for Murano glass for the ordinary person, i.e. the one who doesn't have lots of money. A good book pays for itself very quickly by helping to avoid mistake purchases. It is more enjoyable to collect good glass than okay glass.

Thank you for the advice on collecting txsilver i originally started collecting a few months back and wanted to collect things that were good investments  for the future as its quite a time consuming hobby i try too buy from charity shops it amases me how charity shops can get the prices of glassware  wrong, i remember seeing a waterford crystal decanter for £4 recently yet they had £8 on a polish crystal vase in a box?? What glass is a good investment for the future? ive heard sklo union might be an up and coming glass to purchase now at reasonble prices for the future. thanks dan.
