A pair of i-linja bottles.
Koristepullo - a decorative bottle.
Put together they seem to define a shape in between them that is similar to many of the modernist designs of Finland.
iittala Timo Sarpaneva i-line 2518 lila and blue produced 1961 – 1966
(cfp 174 of Millers 20th century glass Andy McConnell)
Timo Sarpaneva (31 October 1926 – 6 October 2006), was one of the great personalities of Finnish design.
Height 24.5 cm / 9.6 inches
Diameter 12cm / 4.7 inches
Weight of items 550 grams & 920 grams.
The blue one just has TS as a signature and the "lila" has the full Timo Sarpaneva signature as seen in the last photo with the model number.
Strangely it's the "lila" that weighs more than the blue one.
