¥29,600 JPY
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

One of Japan's most recognised manufacturers of mid-century glass is Iwatsu Glass Co, a company who produced an outstanding amount of incredible pieces predominantly bound for the Western export market.

Based in Osaka, Japan, the company were prolific in the 1960s and 1970s with a fantastic range of vases, centrepieces and art pieces, found in a variety of styles. Often mistaken for Italian and Czech pieces, these can often be found today with original Hineri foil labels still intact - Hineri being one of their glassware ranges.

Some pieces were exported under the Kamei Glass or Nanbu Glass, showcasing the exporters label rather than the Iwatsu Glass label.
