Can't see any no. Or signature. Where would I look on them?

Usually on the underside of the vase.

Thank you for the images, do these have any marks or labels on them to identify that they are to commemorate the Olympics?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
They have 27 in Roman numerals around the top incorporated into the design to represent the 27th Olympiad held in Sydney. They also have the Greek pillars around them to sygnify the Olympics.

Could you please add close-up images of those as well.

Ask Your Own Appraisals Question

Hi,

Thank you for the additional images and for your patience.

These are limited edition, Waterford cut glass vases that were part of the centerpieces for the Sydney 2000 Olympics, or XXVII (27th) Olympiad that were designed by Jim O'Leary. On today's market, each could sell for up to $4000 per vase, or $8000 total for two.
