    These are a pair of vases just purchased at a church hazards there are some issues but still beautiful. The older man who sold them said they were his grandmothers. There is a small sticker that has Mille Fiori glass they are about 10" high. Can anyone tell me anything about the pair. I am not able to find anything to compare them to? Thanks Pat

      These vases are turn of the Century Bohemian glass, likely produced ca 1900-1915 or so.

      Thank You welzebud, for your comment, I guess the sticker was incorrect on the item.

      Although some consider these to be by Harrach, and they certainly bear a resemblance to some of their production, the production house of Franz Welz also produced quite similar wares, and without some strong documentation to identify the examples, either house could have produced them. That is why I referred to them as Bohemian.

      Here is an article I posted on some similar styles of production, and also includes an image of a Harrach case in a well known Museum, although this specific shape is not shown there.
