I've had this pair of Victorian glass vases for several years, but had not posted them here as a pair...I've posted only one previously. They used to live in two separate residences & are now reunited.
They are made from milky opalescent glass with a swirling ribbed pattern. The vases shade to green at their elaborately crimped, JIP style top rims, & feature applied decoration of yellow daisy flowers. As can be seen, one of the daisies has a longer stem than the other, & even though the vases are a pair, there are slight differences in dimensions. The subtle joys of hand - crafted glass!
The vase with the longer stemmed daisy measures 22.3 cm tall, 8.3 cm across the base, & 9.3 cm across the top rim.
The vase with the shorter stemmed daisy measures 21 cm tall, 8.5 cm across the base, & 9.5 cm across the top rim.
Purchased at the Wentworth Park antiques fair (oh how I long for the happy day when it resumes...next year I hope).
Most likely Bohemian origin.
