I love this pair of vases.

They're in what I'd describe as a teardrop shape with internal criss-cross cobweb design. Kind of Op Art looking.

They're just over 7in high and the base is completely flat and smooth with age-related scratches.

No marks - but great quality.

Any thoughts would be hugely appreciated.
Many thanks, Anthony

Thank you. The netting design is exactly the same as on the other thread. That was fast! Much appreciated.
Many thanks, Anthony

Harrtil vases are rare and pairs are rarer.  This is one of my top three Harrtil shapes. Nice find and in great shape. Often the clear glass ones are clouded.

Great. Thanks David. I had no idea at all what they were when I bought them. Just loved them and had a good feeling about them.
Many thanks, Anthony
