Pair of Antique English Agateware Northumberland Glass Vases, England circa 1890

A pair of antique English Agateware style Northumberland glass vases from England circa 1890. These striking vases are named after the famous glass works established in  1787 in England near the town of Newcastle-upon-Tyne near the village of Lemington.  These pressed glass pieces were produced in the late 19th century using the molds more commonly associated with examples made in clear glass.  The beautiful swirls of amethyst and white were achieved by mixing the slag (leftovers from mining operations) into the clear glass.  The intense variations in color resulted by chance as opposed to a strict formula.  Be sure to look closely to see the impressed design on the mug left by the mold used to form this piece.
