Vase - Sphinx “Made in Japan” Raised flowers
« on: January 23, 2015, 08:58:45 PM »
Vase with Applied Raised flowers
Can someone help me identify the company and year of production of this vase? 

Marked on the bottom in gold: 
Sphinx “Made in Japan” with the head/bust of the Shinx     
I cannot find anything about the company or years of production. 
“Sphinx” “Made in Japan”   
This vase has applied raised flowers with a scene in a circle on the front. 
The photo of the mark is not very clear but it is all I have right now.

This is a glass board. You would be better off somewhere like this http://www.20thcenturyforum.com/

OK - Thank you for replying. I am such a novice at this. I honestly thought this would be considered glass. I am sorry. How do I move it or do I have to repost?
