Are these vases even from Murano? If not then Japan might be a possibility.

Dear GlassO,

Japan? Now that would surprise me. What leads you to believe so?

Thanks

Well.. just a possibility and this is a crude generalisation, Japanese glass can sometimes be a bit generic in design, high quality and colourful, the vases in question seem to fit these criteria for me.

Some examples of Japanese glass likely from the same sort of time period : http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,44439.msg247564.html
