Kagami Japanese Cut Crystal Bowl

In Japanese the term used for glass was giyama or giaman. The term is thought to originate from either the Dutch or English (many terms were incorporated from Spanish, Portugese, Dutch, and English during the 18th and 19th centuries).

Cut glass technology first appeared in Satsuma in Kyushu during the late Edo Period around the 1840-1850 period. Satsuma was able to create a lucrative cut glass industry and works incorporating Japanese designs and European aesthetics became popular in Edo that Edo kiriko or cut glass appeared during the same period.

The Japanese love for cut glass continues to this day and various objects for tea and Japanese cuisine can be seen during the summer season.

The bowl is a Japanese cut crystal glass produced during the 1950-1970 period.
