Vintage heavy purple glass vase by Laslo for Mikasa, made in Japan. This heavy glass ginger jar vase is made of a mass of smooth reflective glass in a rich dark purple. It has a lighter purple glass collar.
The bottom of this glass Mikasa vase is flat, ground and polished. The outside has a very smooth polished surface. The ginger jar vase is in near mint condition with no nicks, scratches, damage or signs of use.
The photographs are not the best because the vase is shiny and very reflective. It is architectural heavy glass and very high quality.
The vase is 6 inches high. It has a fairly narrow opening of 1 3/4 inches, which is nice as the flowers don't flop over as easily as in a large vase. This purple vase is suitable for a medium-sized bouquet (i.e., the kind you get or give as gifts to a friend or partner for a special occasion). It goes particularly well with green, white, yellow, lavender and purple flowers.
Flowers are not included.
This Mikasa vase weighs almost two pounds; that is why the shipping price is so high. The Post Office sends packages over 1 lb. to x-ray first, which delays delivery. Therefore, the package may take up to 9 days to reach you.
