Absolutely fantastic cased blue opaline French vase with gilt engraved ivy decorations. Excellent condition and measuring about 11 3/4" x 5 1/4". The gilt is great around the body...there is some wear visible around the "v" type decorations but otherwise this is fantastic. Its great overall considering the age. Large polished pontil as shown. Fantastic quality glass. Have not found a comparable pair of vases in reference.....but the quality of these and overall condition is outstanding!
