I think these are fakes. I actually bought them thinking they were fakes, but wanted the CW team to weigh in on it.
The marks look like some early Weller marks but look how blurry the one is.
The glaze looks odd to me.
The bottoms are really rough.
They only cost me a couple of bucks and I thought this might be a great way to discuss fakes on the market.
I would really be interested to hear what you think. Or fake stories that have happened to you.
Cheers!!

    I look forward to hearing what people say, Amber. The glaze is incredibly thick and has been 'ground' at the bottom. Interesting items.

    I am still on the fence. I know the mark existed and is from something like the 20 to the 30s. (I love mark links!). But why is the bottom such a mess? Glaze is kinda off...hmmmm. I did not dig into this too much last night as I took a mega yoga class...pretty much done after that. Will continue the investigation today.

    Hi Amber! Check out these two orange glaze pieces:

    Note the ground glaze. It looks like this glaze demanded more than just a wipe.

    Alright you two, go back to your neutral corners! Geez, I step away for one minute to get ready for work, and look what happens!
    Sean, stop teasing eye.
    Eye, accept that we will all swing and miss.
    Dang you make me regret having you two...oh wait you're not my children : )

    Interesting, this is the same mark on our "Turkis" vase. There doesn't seem to much information out there on these.. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/128703-weller-turkis?in=user
