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.
