The vases each have the same detail underneath. They are signed in monogram by both Hannah Barlow and her assistant Bessie Newbery. They have Hannah Barlow's design number, 457, and the impressed Doulton Lambeth mark with the word 'England' underneath, dating them to the period 1891-1902. The vases weigh 4500g.
