Hi Josie,
Thank you for the images.
Are there any marks on these? And are those glass inserts at the top in the new set of photos?

There are no marks on these pieces. I inserted a small shot glass to give an idea of the width of the mouth on the pieces. These pieces are totally hollow and very rough on the inside.

Thank you for your response.

Hi Josie,
I have not found a match to this for you.
I will opt-out and your question will open again to all the experts. If someone knows the answer they will post a response to you here. You do not need to re-list your question and this does not cost you extra.
I will not be able to respond back after opting-out.
I do hope you find the information that you seek.
Sincerely,
Nora
