Stunning pair of 19th Century Amethyst Bristol Glass Vases, hand painted in Chinoiserie style between 1870 - 1880 with enamels and gilt. Amethyst glass appears deep inky black until held to the light when the purple color is revealed. Beautifully decorative, these were painted with skill, a complimentary pair. These complimentary sets are so rare {most are the less desirable matched identical vases.

Decorated with birds on cherry branches, the branches have dimensional gold enamel. An extremely unusual set, I forgave it the flake on one of the top scallops, and hope you will too. See the photo, I heightened the light so that you can see this - it was smoothed over and isn't sharp. There is wear to the gilt as shown. Rich thick enamel color birds, leaves, cherries and flowers makes this pair exceptional and special. Sold as found.

  • Measure 8-1/2"h x 3".
