So I picked up these Wedgwood "tumblers" at our local goodwill for $20. They are in perfect condition and quite beautiful. I am familiar with Wedgwood, however both myself and our local antiques dealers are all scratching our heads! We can't find any other examples of these particular "tumblers" anywhere. I say tumblers, but they are more like small juice glasses or something closer to very large shot glasses. Either way, I have added some large pictures so you can get an idea, I would love some help identifying these a little more clearly! Also am I right in guessing that the P 67 marking means that they are from the early 1900's?

Any help much appreciated - I am not looking for value (unless you know it off-hand) - I do know that at $20 they are a STEAL!

Thanks everyone!

    You do not mention a size, but I can tell you I had one of identical shape and pattern in green Wedgwood jasperware and it had metal fittings for a cigarette lighter. Offhand, I'm guessing it was 3.5" to 4" tall.
    They are not quite that early, the 67 in this case I believe is 1967.
    Here's the same one, with fittings, in blue Jasperware:

    An Internet search for Wedgwood Jasperware cigarette lighter will yield more results.

    Remember that jasperware is somewhat porous, and any that is intended to hold liquid of any kind will be glazed on the interior.

    It is not unusual for jasper components to "escape" from the factory and show up on the public market. These are part of a suite of desk items, there is a matching ashtray, picture frame and other things. Yes, they were made in 1967. They would make lovely pencil holders on a desk, but their original intent was indeed as cigarette lighters.
