This is a pair of Bohemian art glass vases. The vases are signed on the bottom. The glassmaker is Harrach. The date is circa 1880.

The vases are 6” high and 3” wide at the upper belly.

The interior glass is white opal, or opaline. The outside glass is shaded pink, lighter at the bottom, shading to a cranberry color at the top.

The outside is hand enameled, or painted, in different colors of gold enamel, showing branches, flowers and leaves, and with a hovering dragonfly on each vase.

The vases, though made at the same time, and of the same shape, with similar enameling, have different weights. This is because the interior case is denser and thicker on one vase than the other vase.

One vase has a skip in the outer layer of glass at the base; this looks like a chip, sort of, but it isn’t. Right at the rim there is a dark line in the white glass, on the same vase as the skip at the bottom.

Each vase is marked on the bottom with the propeller mark and a hand enameled number. One vase has the number 6. The vase with the skip has the number 18.

There are no other flaws in the glass other than what I already mentioned.
