This is an English pair of peach blow art glass vases or candle holders. If you look inside the vases, you can see that the neck narrows and the glass can hold a candle of various widths and lengths. The date is the end of the 19th century, circa 1890.
The outer layer of glass is light pink at the bottom and shades to a darker pink at the top. There is an inner casing of white opal glass.
The outside of each vase is hand enameled in sprigs of flowers and leaves. There are some hand painted gold leaves that complement the enameled flowers that show wear due to handling and age.
The vase on the left in the photos shows some gold enamel residue on the front towards the bottom. I did not try to scrape it off. The rims show the remains of some gold trim. There is a thin band of gold trim around the outside of the foot rest that is still intact.
The candlestick holders or vases are 9 ¼” high, 1 7/8” wide at the mouth and 3 ¾” wide at the base.
The rim is polished flat.
The pontils are indented and smooth. The white casing shows through on the bottom of one vase.
There are no nicks, chips or cracks.
