At first I was going to reply that the metal mounts seemed to  big and heavy for Wavecrest. Then I checked the book "Wave Crest The Glass of C.F. Monroe" by Wilfred Cohen and on page 69 is shown a pair of what he calls urns. The shape exactly matches yours and in looking at the style of painting on your piece, I think we can say yes it is Wavecrest.

Thanks so much Terry. I don't have that book by Monroe and nothing like it was shown in the books I have. The glass is such good quality I knew it was something good.
