Hi,

Please send images of these in natural light and a view of the underside of them as well.

Also, check the body of these everywhere for a signature if any.

Hi,

If you could please provide an in-focus image in natural light that would be helpful to see the truest sense of the colors in the glass.

Ok.It keeps rejecting my files saying they are too large

Reducing the file size should remedy that, however I am not able to guide you through reducing file sizes....

Hi,

I received your images and thank you for your patience.

These are more than likely not Murano glass from Italy.

They are free-form amberina and smoky brown topaz tones in a graduated size, and most definitely Mid Century Modern era.

The most likely possible maker is Chalet Canada Glass.

High value for the pair together $300 - $400 on today's market.
