I picked these beauties up at an antiques mall in Maryland. The seller was Gary Baldwin of Moser Artistic Glass fame. Although I bought them as a pair, they were priced individually, and I'm not convinced they were ever meant to be a pair. The iridescence creates a pronounced difference in surface color that can be seen in the photos. But the glass underneath is white - sort of a milky white opaline (see third photo of ground and polished pontil mark and try to ignore the spurious LCT some idiot put there) - So I'm displaying them together and calling them white chiné (vs. Candia or Zephyr). They are about 5" tall.
I couldn't find these shapes in the paper patterns, but I estimate that they are circa 1900.
