This pair of Victorian vases have had a long, hard life, but still deserved a place in my collection.
Made from three layers of cased glass - clear over pink with silvery mica inclusions, & an opaline interior, they measure 13.3 cm tall, 5.5 cm across the cut, cup shaped top rims, & 5 cm across the bases, which do not have pontil marks. The vases have a melon - ribbed form.
The mica inclusions have the appearance of seaweed - I do wonder how this effect was achieved...
Bohemian origin. Thanks to welzebub for IDing these as Harrach!
