These usually sit on my bathroom window sill gathering dust, so after I washed them the other day I decide to take some photos.
The pagoda bottles in pic 2 are both from Hoya.
Beautiful crystal, fantastically cut and with a cut design on the back of stopper to represent a pagoda.
Unfortunately the big one has suffered some damage but I don't mind.
The larger one is big at 21cm tall (8in).
The next two I am pretty sure are also Japanese.
Both from cut crystal, one with an intaglio flower cut into the back of the stopper, the other stopper facet cut.
Like the Hoya both have ground glass necks and stoppers.
The last two are both from Orrefors.
Again cut crystal and with ground stoppers but both also minimally designed in that Swedish way.
In the group shot there is also two pressed glass bottles, one with a metal framed hinged lid, the other with a little ground glass stopper.
