These two Victorian vases are both made from cased glass, & both feature crimped tops.
The vase on the left is a pale greyish - pink lined with pale pink, & measures 13.5 cm tall, 9 cm across the double crimped top rim, & 6.7 cm across the base, which has a rough, snapped pontil mark.
The vase on the right is white lined with deep pink. The white contains uranium & glows bright green under UV light. It measures 13 cm tall, 9 cm across the crimped, jack - in - the - pulpit style top rim, & 6 cm across the base, which has a rough, snapped pontil mark.
It was also the first example of Victorian glass that I ever acquired - a very long time ago (so long ago I think I was still in my teens)...actually, I didn't know it was Victorian back then, just that it was "old" & pretty. I found it in an op shop (thrift store) & I recall that it was extremely dirty. I didn't find out about the uranium content until decades later.
Both vases are probably Bohemian in origin. The pinkish grey & pale pink one has a similar colour scheme to a hand vase that I posted recently.
