This is a pretty pair of cased English art glass vases. The date is the 19th century, circa 1890.
Each vase is 6 ¾" high and 4 ½" wide at the belly.
The outer glass is white opaline. The inner glass is yellow. The rim has a clear glass trail. You can see your fingers and hand through the glass when looking down through the top.
The mouth is double crimped, with a four-way deep crimp, then multiple small crimps.
The front of each vase is hand enameled and hand painted with a complementary decoration. There is a peach banner going from top to bottom. On one side is a bird. The banners show enameled leaves and stems. Over the banners are painted and enameled leaves in blue, green, brown and yellow. There are dots of raised pink enamel depicting berries on stems descending from the leaves.
There are no nicks, chips or cracks.
The bottoms show a snapped off pontil.
