The vases are hand painted with purple flowering thistles on tall stems applied in a tubelined fashion with green painted scrolling leaves supporting buds set on a mottled yellow ground with blue ground elements around the top and base of the vases. The vases have printed makers marks to the base.
In good condition with light wear commensurate with age.
