Heavy Hot Worked Lobed Vase Murano???? ID = Japan (Sanyu)
« on: June 02, 2021, 04:06:53 PM »
Purchased a lovely heavy vase wondered if anybody could tell me if it might
be a Murano vase I have seen some similar pieces By Seguso but should not
jump to conclusions as i am not sure, There are the remnants of an oval label
 any ideas would be greatly received thanks :)

 A little further east! Sanyu Japan, I believe.

I have this one named as Kamei but my knowledge of Japanese glass is very thin especially when it comes to brand names and manufacturers.

I would second the Sanyu ID. They did a number of colour variations of this design.
Funnily enough I've just listed the exact same one in my shop.

Kamei was a Japanese exporter, they did not make glass. It is by Sanyu. I have a labelled example. There was also an importer named Kamei America that was active in the mid 1980s. There was no apparent connection between the Japanese and American companies.
Glass mutt. I collect anything I like & find interesting & is of reasonable quality.
