    Katherine, the glass hats are sitting upside down. They are match strikes and one puts matches [the strike anywhere kind] inside and then use the sides and bottom to strike the match.

    they look like typical knick knacks to me. The pattern looks to be 'Daisy and Button' and produced but many glass makers. The match holders I've seen have a glass section that is a tight file pattern for striking.

    tallcakes, the "tight file pattern" is called threaded glass, like this one:

    Here are a couple of examples to show form and function similar to r_c's:

    I am familiar with 'threaded' glass and what I was referencing is often called a 'file' design as in this EAPG match safe (link for reference only):
