    This I believe to be another great Flea Market find today. :^D
    I think this pair of vases are 1890's Bristol blown custard glass, with a satin finish, and hand painted, with an opposite, or mirror image flower design.
    The 10" footed vases, are 3" at the widest point, with a 2 3/4" base, and 1 1/2" across the top.
    I only think this is what they are, because it's the closest that I could find with my search, but they could be newer Bohemian painted satin glass, Japanese, or even Fenton painted custard glass. I'm not that familiar, with this type of glass. Any help identifying these two beautiful vases would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for looking, all comments welcome! :^)

      Not Japanese, Bill, and a fantastic true, mirrored pair.
      This is not my area but I'm leaning toward Bohemian. I hope the Czech glassies pop in for a look and comment!

      Thanks Karen, I think you're probably right, Bohemian. I didn't realize they weren't matched, but mirrored, until I got them home, and started photographing them, then it cane to me in a flash! :^)
      Thanks for the love too!

      Hi billretirecoll, I have a vase of glass like this, I also thought it was Bristol custard glass, I see a lot described as that, but most here think it's Bohemian. Very nice wherever they're from & great to have a pair!
    11. billretirecoll billretirecoll, 6 years ago
      Thanks Fran, what's nice is they're mirrored image, so look good on a mantel, or in a case. Bohemian is what I think too, but all good, they look nice! :^D Thank you for the love too! :^)
