    I think I need a week on a winter's day to order all my unidentifiable glass into themes and shapes - this trio share a lot of features with unmistakeably Czech/Bohemian glass - usually cased and not engraved.

    These share some features with other posts - multiple crescent-like cuts and/or crosses up ribs that show off the light, especially when lit from above, like little jewels. They would have been best shown off in a darkly-coloured room, I imagine, not next to our modern insipid (was minimalist) interior decor.

    Interesting feet are also a feature - but not in all cases - lion or elephant as in the larger pair.

    I imagine, though, that this sort of vase really could have been produced anywhere as easy to copy and, with the movement of expertise across Europe in the 19th century, the knowledge was present across northern Europe. So only tentatively in "Bohemian art glass" at present.

    The larger elephant-footed pair are 28.5cm high, the smaller 18.3cm, and is hallmarked [g] HP&S for London, 1902.

    As always, for my posts, I appreciate and welcome any information or feedback, even if it shows me to be completely wrong!
