I wanted an eclectic collection of vases for our wedding flowers, but also a sense of order, so I displayed different vases on each table, but with all the vases on each table matching each other (if that explanation makes any sense?!). These Cristal D’Arque vases, which we filled with chrysanthemums, were probably my favourites! Until very recently I had a larger version of this vase on my coffee table in my lounge (the wind knocked it over one very sad day a few months back), and I’ve been on the hunt for another one ever since! These smaller versions aren’t quite as impressive, but being lead crystal they’re still very beautiful to look at, especially with that faceted design. They’re also in perfect nick with not a scratch on any of them, which is impressive for glass that’s probably in the region of thirty years old.
Great quality vases with a very attractive design. These vases would look great grouped together or on display as part of a collection of glass or crystal.
Dimensions: Each vase measures 22cm tall x 8cm in diameter
Price: R130 each
