These vases are some of my favorite vases that I own. So you may ask me why am I selling them then...well, my husband is making me get rid of stuff since we're moving back to our hometown of Pittsburgh (where my great aunt bought these vases), and we're trying to downsize. I hope these go to someone who loves them too!

These vases are identical. On the bottom there is a sticker that says "Brinn's Pittsburgh, PA. Made in Japan. There is a black stamp on each vase that says "T-1589/AV".

The vases measure 5 1/2 inches tall. The base is just over 2 1/2 inches in diameter, and the circumference of the widest part in the middle is about 11 inches. The opening on the top is 3 inches in diameter.

Both vases are in excellent condition. Neither are crazed or have any chips or cracks. The inside of the vases are also glazed with the same color green as the outside. The handles are very ornate. The vase is textured - on the photos you can see the swirly looking vertical lines. Those have texture to them, so you feel them run down the vase. Very cool!

Some history on Brinn's as sited from http://www.headvasemuseum.com/html/contents/contents2_frame.html:

Brinn's China-Glassware Co. - Founded by Samuel I. Brinn in the early 50's, the Pittsburgh-based company stayed under the management of the Brinn family. In its beginnings, Brinn's was a wholesaler of art ware, dinnerware, figures, garden pottery, jardinières, premiums, teapots, glassware, ovenware, novelties and various ceramic and glass accessories. By 1959, the company distributed ceramic and brass imports from Japan and England. Two decades later, under the operation of president Charles Brinn and vice president David M. Brinn, the company was listed as ian importer of ceramic figurines, animals, novelties, dinnerware, stainless steel, and dolls.
