Oh that's interesting, I sold a few of these some years ago, always wondered what they were.

Sounds like you're right about Sasaki Glass:

In the right hand coloumn, under "Sasaki Glass Co., Ltd.", 2nd pic, very tiny, but seems to match your logo.

Thanks Wayne

Great photos - I love these - the white works well with the colours so well - I have had some red ones in the past.

Keep my eyes peeled for anymore - I wonder who imported them to GB in the 60s 70s?

All the best

Adam

Good links - it seems Sasaki started in 1902 and is one of Japan's leading glass makers - still going strong as Toyo - Sasaki.

Excellent Wayne - the three 's' logo mark is same as the tiny backstamp on my pieces.
