Large Bronze Mounted Green Opaline Vases =ID and Origin Help
« on: January 05, 2013, 11:03:52 PM »
So I have a matched pair of these that I recently picked up. I guess they are opaline glass? I originally thought french but they have no markings on the bronze or glass. The glass sections are 18" tall. Guessing 1910 to 1920? Any help would be great!

My first guesses would be either good quality Bohemian or French. Absolutely lovely.
