    These two miniature Victorian glass vases are made from opaque custard coloured glass, which contains uranium & glows under UV light. Both vases feature applied decoration in amber glass, & must be by the same maker...I do feel that they are very English in style.
    The footed vase measures 9 cm tall, 4.7 cm across the polished top rim, & around 6.5 cm from foot to foot at the base. It has an applied chain type rigaree around the rim, & three applied shell ribbed feet. No pontil mark.
    The squat, round vase measures 6 cm tall, 4.8 cm across the polished top rim, & 4.5 cm across the base. It has an applied leaf handle in amber glass. No pontil mark.
