I think you’re going to have a hard time finding something in that height and at a reasonable price too…

Have you considered buying some plain glass and then doing a DIY mercury glass effect? Here’s a link on how to do it (and there are a ton more online as well):

Here’s a link where they’ve got TONS of pretty mercury glass, but nothing in the height that you’re looking for:

Good luck!!

I’ve found TONS of mercury glass vases and such at TJ MAXX, Marshalls and Home Goods. The only problem is finding 20 at the same time. It’s all dependent upon their stock, so if you’re okay with variation of mercury glass vases and or you’re willing to drive to different locations, then I say these stores have a great selection (for really cheap too). Good luck!

jasminecorapci:  It’s going to be really difficult to find cylinder vases that tall. Normally they are kept below 14″ so they don’t obstruct the view of the guests. Usually only really narrow vases like Eiffel Tower vases are available in those heights.

If you are determined to have height, no matter what it does to your guests’ view, you could elevate the vase on a stcak of books or a box.
