The three differently sized purple ones can, with care, be stacked within each other to form a nice 'triplet'. Oh, it saves space as well :D

That's a very good idea. Now I just need to find three sizes of all the rest too! That should take me a few years.  ::)  cheryl

Several years ago, I did try stacking them, but couldn't get it to work properly. ::)

The folded "corners" do not neccessarily fit with each other.

I'd seen a chihuly exhibition in the V&A, and liked his stacking things in layers to create a 3-D collage of glass to occupy a space, I was trying to fill my kitchen window sill.

You need glass that has been properly made to stack, to make 3-D collages with it. :'(

I got very bored today , I have a rare day to myself so I tried stacking the three purple ones.  ;D  They do stack but it's a very untidy pile as the big one is not a uniform shape as the other two are made on forms. Also it would be so easy to knock the points off.  Won't be doing that again!!  Back to being bored I think.    :D   Cheryl

I'll post a photo later of my stack of handkerchief vases if I can find the time. The purple ones are best for this purpose being translucent, but it won't work if the large one isn't exactly uniform!

Keith
There is a new indoor antique & collector fair at Warwickshire Cricket Ground in Edgbaston opposite Cannon Hill Park this Sunday.  There is always Chance Glass there. Like the London Buses & Beefeater pin trays. This is their third show.

I knew there was something I hadn't done - here's the stack of purple Cordon handkerchief vases. I do also have the same in red polka-dot as well.
