Here is a picture. I have a pair of them.
Expert:  Rarewares replied 2 months ago.

This is a pair of circa 1890's Pairpoint/ Mt. Washington Glass

of Sandwich/South Boston, Massachusetts satin glass double-handled vases with ruffled rims and enamel painted fronts. The value for the pair is $450 to $550. Alone, one vase would not have a high value (100 to $125), but a matching pair always adds value.
