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.

 

THIS LISTING:

A gorgeous cranberry pink bowl/centrepiece, with a shimmery finish. This style, often referred to as a handkerchief bowl, is a well-known model and appears in a variety of colours. This particular piece is cased, meaning it has a white internal lining which helps the exterior colour pop.

Measuring 16.5cm tall and 17.5cm diameter, this piece in great to excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or major scratches. There are some bubbles in the glass from manufacturing and some light surface scratches, mainly towards the base; expected and seen often in these types of pieces.
