I have no idea what these are. Found them together so I bought all three. They are made of heavy solid green bottle glass in graduated sizes ( about 3", 2 1/2" and 2" in dia.) with stems or handles. They look like doorknobs but no hardware for attaching them and two are way too big. Paper weights maybe, but they're not flat on the bottom. Counter weights because of their graduated size ? Some kind of tamper for flatting dough or pastry ? Sock darning eggs / mushrooms? Kind of heavy for that. What do you think ? -Mike-

    Well, I think I guess.... bottle stoppers ? The ends seem a bit thin and long but they are tapered. Also they aren't satin finished for sealing, but they could have been just decorative bottles.

    I have no idea what they might be. Let us know if you find out:)

    Maybe glass mushrooms/toad stools.
