    Need help identifying brass vases

    Hi all,
    I just joined this forum tonight in the hopes of trying to identify a pair of small but heavy vases I acquired from my great grandfather about 40 years ago. They are slightly different as can be seen in the picture, but similar in a lot of ways. Apparently his brother was a merchant marine in the late 1800's, and these were brought over from China or India by him. There are no markings to indicate maker, country, etc. ; just the design work on the sides. One is 4" tall, the other 4 1/4". They are just under 2" in diameter in the middle. The taller one weighs 7 oz. ; the shorter weighs a bit more - 8 oz.
    Don't know if that plus the picture is enough to go on, but it's a start....

    Hello and welcome.
    They look chinese to me, but I'm not an expert. Are they made of brass?

    Yes Yaxthri, they are brass. And the inside of each vase is rough - they weren't finished at all.
