A pair of Welz Iridescent Swirl vases. I believe this decor hasn't been recorded to date on this Welz shape, so to have a pair is pretty good going. Unusually both these pieces are gold painted/enameled on the inside and the minor chips you can see on the lip edges are chips to this 'paint'.
I have my suspicion that this is a post-production addition, maybe by a retailer (just to fancy them up a bit more - like they needed it!!!!?) or a previous owner. It is clear that these vases do have the applied black rim under this paint. By applying a strong light through the glass you can see the broad brushstrokes. So question is, do I get the paint stripper out???
Thanks to Craig for confirming Welz id.
