This is a pair of Royal Ruby glass vases made by Anchor Hocking Glass of Lancaster, Ohio

in the 1950-60 time period. This shape was made in 9" and 12" vases. The term pigeon blood is a term that refers to Chinese porcelain, whereas the term ruby glass is more fitting for vintage glass items.

They would have originally had foil paper stickers on them that always fell away with washing and use (see photo for an example of the sticker).

This pair has a value of $50 to $60 for the pair.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Ioffer.com, OfferUp.com, Ebay and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
