This is a nice set of vases, sort of art deco in style. The hallmarks are clear, and declare that the vases are British Sterling, minted in Birmingham in the year 1936, by the maker "S' something. The vases measure 7 and 1/8 inches tall, and 3 and 1/2 inches in diameter across the top. They are in excellent condition. I see one very small dent in one side of one vase, and an even smaller, barely noticeable, dent in the other one. There are no large dents, repaired places, or scratches in this pair of vases. Please excuse the shadows on the silver; there is no discoloration.
