History of Shotoku Glass
Established as a manufacturer of light bulbs in 1922, Shotoku Glass were originally renowned for their niche technique in mouth-blown glass. As the light bulb industry automated, Shotoku Glass shifted to manufacturing glassware, concentrating on the production of mouth-blown glasses of several thousand kinds. Shotoku Glass is most known in Japan for their“Edo glass”; a small beer glass that is admired for its handiness and delicate strength, earning a high reputation with top restaurants and the hospitality industry. With a long and rich experience in mouth-blown glasses, Shotoku Glass has succeeded in creating an ideal series of very thin glassware.
