Request for identification
I bought this set of glass rods yesterday at an auction in Japan. My 'specialty' is Japanese antiques and I am pretty sure these aren't Japanese.
The rods range in length from 17.7cm. - 19.7cm. long. There are 4 of them. 3 are purple in the rod area, 1 is green. They all have tapered ends. Ancient glass - a set on Flickr is a link to a flickr set of photos.
I know some about Japanese glass but almost nothing about other kinds of glass. I would like help in identifying these. Any pointers would be helpful.
