These belong to my friend's aunt that is moving. Could the tall one be a Roseville? The number looks like 670 to me. The blue glass vase is unmarked.

The green-ish one is "Roseville-esque" pottery of the same era...but not Van Briggle nor any of the other big names.

Very nice vase...I can see it full of daisys, or tulips or zinnias...
The glass I believe....for what I can a repro of a carnival glass appears thick with prominent mold marks and little that right?
Worth...? Not much for either....but the green vase, I like....a lot!

RE: A couple old vases - worth anything?

I haven't seen these pieces in person, but it does look like the blue glass does have prominent mold marks, especially on the base.

Thanks for your help, I have sent your reply to my friend.

The green one is McCoy and maybe worth about 25-30 dollars. It's called McCoy vellum.

Found some of those on eBay Javaandjazz.. sure does look like that could be it. Thanks!

So....that sent me on an internet stroll! LOL! And I learned a lot....Brush pottery, Brush-McCoy and McCoy...different stuff, different eras....but closely related.
I think the green vase is Brush-McCoy.
