    Are these celery glass vases?

    Wow, this is not a busy forum!

    So my mother-in-law asked me to identify these five vases. She thinks they're celery glass.

    I never heard of celery glass. I asked the All Mighty Google and I still don't have a clue.

    The tallest bottle is the center one in the group of three, at eight inches.

    The right one in the pic of three, and the left one in the pic of two, both have a faint pink tint to them.
    Thanks

    So I learned that the widest of the five vases, the left one in the three and the right one in the two, are true celery vases.

    So it turns out that in the US, from 1850 - 1910 ish, if a family served celery it was a show of wealth! They would buy a special vase, tall and wide as to display the whole thing in.

    So back then, celery was for the rich and lobster was dog food, slave food, not fit for human consumption.

    Now, kids are eating celery with peanut butter and raisins and stores sell lobster tails at forty dollars a pound.
