    The similarities - both are mould-blown and ribbed with ground rims and a chamfered edge to accommodate the ribbing. The smaller, however, has had the ribs hot-worked and pulled into "teeth" or "thorns", while the larger isn't worked in the same way, and the ribs end in "fins".
    They are not uv-reactive.
    All this ends up with an interesting optical effect for each vase.
    I am particularly interested in the shape of the smaller as there are similarly worked examples in different décors around on the internet - anyone know anything about that?
    35.5 and 20.5cm high.

      Yes - I saw this and love it too - as well as all the other combinations of verde glass - I don't know if information is readily available and I am only one or two steps ahead of you in collecting - if that - so I think watch this space...!
      In plainer forms like this, I am mainly collecting hallmarked silver as at least there is a date stamp from the collar. I trust (and it is relatively easy to tell) that the vase is contemporaneous with the collar.
      Like yours, though, my examples, when unhallmarked, are unusual in some way like cut, engraved, size, &c.
      My bugbears over the last 3 years of collecting have been spatters - not so much seems to be "interesting" 3 years later - plain tango glass (slightly too much orange glass in my collection) - and green iridescent glass (not all that glisters is gold).
      However, in the process, I have learned a lot from the great and the good, as it were.
