The ribbing on the piece is very similar to Japanese output from the 60's/70's. Although I have not seen anything like the style in your piece before in Japanese Glass, especially with those bold colourful splotches on the piece in that colour way.

My gut feeling says that it may not be Japanese but could be a later Chinese piece from the 80's/90's in my opinion. The shape is quite elegant, but the colour combo seems out of place for Japanese Glass as by the late 60's they were making great glass that was comparable to Murano, and mostly till this day, still mistaken and listed/identified as Murano even by reputable dealers and dare I say, Antiques Roadshow!

What do you mean by indented base? The base shot is very pixelated and it is very hard to tell anything.

-Am studying again and working so don't have much time to come here :( Although I need to list some new SVdA pieces here for reference and some older ones. Will hopefully do that in the coming weeks. Also,  if I can find the time, I will be making a PDF SVdA 'Catalogue' in my spare time which I will make available to the users here from my collection :)

Also, feel free to PM me is any suspected Japanese Glass is listed here. It may take a week or more to respond but I will end up looking at it. I am slowing putting together labels of Japanese makers/info and organising my data slowly but it will take some time! It is a real mess!

Hi Kane thanks for that. I am sure you are right it is Chinese, the more I look at it the more it seems right. There is a slight imbalance and the thickness of the rim and a fairly small opening seem to point to it. Teh base is polished and has a circular polished indent. The ribbing is done well, and it works as a flower vase and as we spent very little on it, Alison is happy.

I have one piece of Japanese glass and I love it, http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,52461.msg297786.html#msg297786 glad you are doing some work on Japanese as I am impressed with this piece. Thanks a lot.

Can't seem to be able to PM on the site if you want to contact rthomas1 AT iprimus.com.au looking forward to speaking with you. (Mod email amended to prevent spam harvesters - change the AT to @ and close up the spaces.)

regards Ardy

PS where is that SvDA book? I think there are several still waiting on that one!
