    A few weeks ago I posted one of these vases - in the meantime I have acquired it's mate so the pair are reunited. These vases are a true pair with regard to the applied decoration, as they are a mirror image of each other - cherries to the left on the latest one, cherries to the right on the first one I purchased. The left vase is also slightly more intensely green than the right.
    Both vases are made from cased glass which contains uranium & glows under UV light. They have applied decoration of branches, leaves, flowers, & cherries, with subtle differences in the colouration of these details.
    English or Bohemian? Hard to say.

      Many thanks racer4four, MALKEY, & Vintagefran - it is indeed a joy to have these together, they are to me the consummate expression of everything I love about Victorian art glass.

      Thank you most kindly, Marty! I know I've said that I'm trying not to buy any big glass, but how could one possibly turn these down? :-)

      I just saw this in a basket form today in a consignment shop in Venice FL. There was no mark on the bottom. The consigner had it marked as Swedish
