We cannot tell you how pretty and BIG these antique Victorian glass jars are! They are satin finished in pale cream, the jar with roses shading to a slightly darker cream at the bottom. We believe they are Bristol glass. One is hand painted with stunning pink roses and green leaves with very pale green/blue shadow leaves. The back side has one large rose, while the lid has a single large rose on top and rosebuds and leaves on the lid's lower tier. The second jar has two large flowers (poppies?), one being pink and the other salmon/peach, and lots of green leaves with pale green leaf shadows. On this one, the design continues all 'round, with a large pink flower on the back side. The lid has a large peach color poppy on the lid's top, and buds with leaves surround the lower tier of the lid. We're unsure of their intended purpose. With the lids removed, these look like large rose bowls. They could also be biscuit or cracker jars or some sort of grand apothecary jars. They have ground and polished rims and smooth bases, and we believe the glass was mold blown. They are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks and no loss to the painting. Each is 7" high to the top of the lid and approximately 6" in diameter. They are just gorgeous!
