Subject:Pair of antique vases

I have pair of ceramic vases. They were brought from China by my grandparents. Please help me know what kind of ceramic these vases are, their age and value
Thanks Experts

These vases look to be glass, and if they are from China, they would appear to be fairly modern decorative pieces.

Saying they were brought from China by your grandparents isn't much of a basis for dating them. Unless your grandparents traveled in China before the early 1930s, they probably would not have been able to travel there at all prior to Mao Zedong's death in 1976, because China was variously occupied beforehand by WW-II Japanese invaders and domestic insurrection and ending with the notorious Cultural Revolution.

If you have information to support a different dating, please let me know.

Best regards,
