These matching pitchers were left in my mother-in-law's estate. While I have been told that they were made around or shortly after the turn of the century and that the flecks/flakes in the glass are silver, I don't know much more about them. Any information about where and when they were made and their approximate value would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, honestly I don’t know but they are Lovely, from your mother in law, I’m guessing she must of passed away recently and I’m sorry to hear that, I never got any inheritance from a relative that has passed away so I’m jealous of you… however I’ve bought up plenty of other peoples inheritance at a good price, at least your trying to get the most money out of what you got from her, most people don’t research or try to find information on the items that their grand parents or parents held so dear, and get bottom dollar for it…. However I love those type of people since I would rather pay less for a nice piece of some one else’s family heritage, then pay retail price, and if your not Actually interested in the piece for what they are, and are instead interested for how much COLD HARD CASH you can get out of them I wish you the best of luck.

    Yes, sadly, my mother-in-law recently passed away. My husband and I are in the process of settling her estate. Unfortunately, if these are of value, we will be required to sell them and remit the proceeds to be disseminated. Fortunately, she gave me a beautiful set of china, which I value greatly, years before she died. The other thing she passed onto me was a lot of wisdom and strength as I cared for her while she died of cancer. Not fragile, losable or of any monatary value- but priceless as we go forward with our lives without her.

    Victorian art glass ewers. They are cased glass (multi- layers) with mica flakes.

    They look like a nice pair and they do have value.

    I hear stories of the Amazing Victorian Future that my Grand Father and Grand Mother had down the road, however unfortunately instead of dividing the inheritance equally most of my Red Neck relatives went in and "Stole" anything of value while my uncle who was in charge of the whole thing was at work and what was saved by my uncle went up in a fire when his house burnt to the ground, so out of all my grand parents, whom I never met I have a Glass Canning Ingredient Dispenser which is kind of like a Giant Salt Shaker that I went and grabbed about a year ago from the basement of the now long Abandoned and Collapsing House on the Corner, the dispenser has absolutely no Monetary Value what so ever but has a lot sentimental value to me.

    So you can understand why I get a little Angry and Jealous when I see people selling their inheritance... but in most cases I’m sure the reason like yours is not because of Greed or Disrespect and Glad to hear that you at least could keep the China, I hope you can take pictures and post it, I’m sure it’s very beautiful
