I found these at the Round Lake Antiques show this weekend. I always wanted one of these, and when I saw a pair, I knew they would be my Father's day present. I mounted them in my black light cabinet, and they glow nicely. The third picture shows them as mounted, with some of my other pieces in the background. I don't see any chips or cracks, and the brackets are with them, although 2 of the original clamp screws are missing. If anyone know who made these, or what kind of car they originally came with, please let me know. Thanks!

    I'm still confused as to what "car vases" are?
  9. pickrknows pickrknows, 4 years ago
    Like the VW beetle, only 40 yrs earlier!
  10. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
    That doesn't help me understand what a "car vase" is. These were what? Have makers marks, came in cars or what. I'm tired & a bit slow tonight.(actually lately)
  11. pickrknows pickrknows, 4 years ago
    LOL You could mount these in your sedan and add a flower arrangement to help mask the fact that your car has no A/C or air freshener!
  12. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 4 years ago
    How about in a pick-um-up with A/C but no air freshener?
  13. upstatenycollector upstatenycollector, 4 years ago
    blunderbuss2, they were mounted on the inside pillars of high end cars like Packards, Rolls Royces etc. I'm not sure if there were any original equipment ones, or only those made as accessories by companies like Houze, who made these. I remember seeing similar ones in early JC Whitney catalogs. I hope that clears things up!!!! Thanks everyone for the loves!!!!

    I finally get a straight answer. Never heard of that. Kind of sounds like making a car look like a hearse. Actually sounds cheap looking but then all I have to do is look around here.

    Wow, very very cool. I'm sorry I missed this the first go around. I didn't know these existed!
  16. upstatenycollector upstatenycollector, 3 years ago
    Thanks, Amber. I think they are my favorite vaseline piece(s)
  17. AmatoorPikr, 2 years ago

    I found two identical to yours and almost threw them out not knowing what they were. First time I've seen a pair like mine.

    Thanks for the comment Stumbledupon! Hope you like them as much as I like mine.
