This listing is for two separately priced Lenox American made vases with a bulb shaped design that narrows to a smaller width at the top opening as well as a similarly narrower bottom base . The top and the bottom of the vases are decorated with narrow but rich looking bands of gold, and the front and back of the vases are enhanced with gracefully curved embossed images of small iris type flowers branching from narrow curved stems.
I can imagine these used separately or together in a number of original ways. One somewhat traditional way, but with a great unique twist, for using these vases together would be as part of a center piece decoration on a formal or informal oblong dinner table. The vases could be filled with beautifully colored tall blossoms and green foliage and placed on two sides of the center where you might normally use tall taper candles. In between the vases you would place 3- 5 votives or tea lights in small and simple single containers - perhaps small clear bulb shaped glasses - with or without touches of greenery in between. The vases with the flowers create the drama and focus the beautiful Lenox vases deserve, and the small candles create the sparkles of light to draw all eyes in the room to the center of the table.
Each vase is 7 1/4" tall x approx 2 3/4"w at top and bottom x 4" wide at the widest point. Both vases are in mint condition with no flaws or signs of wear. One of the vases was apparently manufacturered in the Centennial year of Lenox Company, and is marked on its bottom with "CENTENNIAL 1889 - 1989". The other is simply marked Lenox - made in USA. The vases are priced separately but can be ordered together for a savings with combined shipping.
