« on: March 06, 2010, 02:40:21 AM »
These vases meaures 12cm in height, top 3.6cm dia. and the base 3.2cm.  Can anyone identify these vases? Originator and age would be of great help.  Many thanks in anticipation.

Murano souvenir vases with galvanic silver deposit. If you polish them up, you risk losing the decoration. Made any time 20s-70s. Not of great value.

Thanks very much Ivo, for identifying these.  Most appreciated.  They were only purchased from a charity shop as a pair for under £2.00.
