$414.00 SGD
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.



A gorgeous vase, in an incredible multi-coloured combination of blue, yellow and pink - giving out a mix of colours as they cross. 

Series Hineri (exported as Kamei Glass)
Production 1960s

Dimensions 21.5cm (8.5") tall, 12cm diameter

Condition Great to excellent condition with no major wear to mention. A couple light scratches and minor nibbles on the base, but minimal.


These multi-coloured options are some of the hardest to find, and often the most sought-after... and you can clearly see why. What a beauty!
