A pair of pink cased spangled art glass bottle shaped vases, they are antique items dating from circa 1890. A lovely and very decorative pair of vases made of cased glass - white on the inside and with a streaky pink glass overlay with silver spangles or flecks through the metal.
The vases have clear glass flower shaped applied decoration around the centre of the bowls and are trailed around the stem with small crimped prunts.
Flower shaped prunts such as these were used by two renowned British glassmakers, Stevens and Williams and Webb, referenced in Albert Christian Levi's book Nineteenth Century Glass.
The vases are in good condition with one vase having the very end section of the clear trail missing and one of the prunts on the trails is chipped. The other has one of the applied flowers around the centre broken off.
The vases stand 6 1/2 inches high and are approx 5 inches in diameter at the widest point.Together they weigh 552g.
This is a pretty pair of vases and very decorative for display or to add to any collection of Victorian period art glass.
