These vases appear to be blown glass and measure about 12.5" high x 7.5" wide x 5.5" deep. They were found together, but are slightly different in color, one more ivory and the other more peach. They were $3 each at a thrift shop in Central IL. These vases are often attributed to Scailmont or some mystery 1930s Art Deco maker, but I found one new in the box and they are made by Anchor Hocking, probably in the 1970s or 1980s. I think they are cased glass, with a thick layer of clear glass surrounding a very thin layer of colored glass. The interior is very smooth and "glassy", so I don't think the interiors are painted. It is interesting to note that Anchor Hocking owned Phoenix Glass in the 1970s, so maybe this was a Phoenix design which might explain why it is so different from the normal Anchor Hocking designs and generated so much mystery. They were made in at least two heights 12.5" and 9.5" and a wide range of colors red, peach, green, purple and even crystal or amber crystal. The comments below show some of this swirl around these vases.
