Pair of White Opaque Glass Mantle Lustre Vases Antique Victorian c 1870
A pair of white opaque glass vases with faceted cut glass prismatic lead crystal droppers, dating from the Victorian period around 1870, probably made in the Stourbridge in England. The colour of glass bodies is sometimes referred to as milk glass or milch glass.
These pretty bulbous stemmed scalloped rimmed vases have been hand painted with a blue flower and leaf decoration with additional gilding to highlight the decoration. This type of vase wase often made to sit on mantle shelves and the glass droppers reflected the light in the room. They are highly decorative and very collectable antiques.
They are in good antique condition one has a small chip to the foot, there is wear to the gilding, some of the droppers have been rewired and some may possibly be replacements.
