Hello everyone,

I've had this bowl/ashtray for a while now and had pretty well given up finding who the maker was, until today. Hope springs eternal?

Someone on another site suggested I do a search for Toshichi Iwata or Itoko Iwata. After looking at a few photos I can see that the use of gold leaf and in some cases, soda glass are similar to this piece but not the shape.

So I'm hoping that I might find a few more leads from you knowledgeable folks who know about Japanese glass.

It stands 9 cm H and 11 cm W. Very thick walled and heavy for it's size. It has a ground pontal that shows a fair amount of age.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I've merged your post from yesterday with your earlier topic about this item, which already has a number of replies, and I've moved the whole merged topic into GLASS, which is the proper place to ask for an identification of a piece of unknown origin.

Thanks for sharing this, very interesting discovery!
Unfortunately there is so little info available about post war Japanese glass...

>> This vase from the Metropolitan Museum of Art collection has quite a few similarities to your lovely piece; and 1959 seems reasonable regarding the shape and the age related ware.

Thanks Michael,

Thats one of the pieces that I came across which made me think that this could actually be Japanese.

You're right about there not being much information about post war Japanese glass. The glass that I have looked at so far has certainly spark my interest.

I hope that someone who is knowledgeable about Japanese glass will see this thread and maybe give me a few more leads.

Fingers crossed,

rob

There was a thread back in 2006 asking about Toshi Iwata, a few links were given:
