I haven't been able to buy much recently (boo hoo) but I was able to snag these two vases.. I believe them to be Harrach (but I think an argument could be made for a couple other companies) one is a bit over 13 inches tall and the other is about 9 inches tall. They're cobalt portrait vases. Sometime between 1850-1870. These are cut back. the white background for the portrait is actually cut away cameo style. I also have a small pink one pictured with these two that I picked up a month or so ago. It would be interesting to know who the models were. The two Cobalt pieces came from the same source.
You see these all the time in clear glasses but not so often in opaque cased glass and even less often in blue.
