I would like to share a couple of my favourites vases that I have had for a while and which I sit and look at everyday.... a beautiful pair of 12 inch... c1885 black glass Harrach vases.
I remembering when I received them and took them out of the wrapping paper, they brought a tear to my eye because!.. when I bid and won them I had no! idea the enameling (which is outlined in gold) was going to be as thick! and as beautiful as it is......they both stand 12 inches tall so an impressive size 'to boot'...
The quality is just wonderful and the colours bright and bold, I love the simplicity of the enameling on the back after the busy front...also because the daisy is one of my favourite flowers.
I am not sure if you would call them a true pair as one has a Swallow the other a Kingfisher and different flowers and foliage....if someone could tell me..:-)
Although a glossy jet black, if held up and only! seen though the vase to the base, it is a very dark purple.
Thank you for looking and hope you like them!...:-)
