These candle holders are 4.5" in diameter x 1.5" high and weigh a bit over 1.2 lbs each. They have a satin finish that is apparently easily marred as every example of these that I seen has a scuff or two. Sasaki made glass for Mikasa in the 1970s-90s. I have seen Sasaki marketed glass made in several countries but could not find an information about that. Sasaki merged with Toyo Glass in 2002 and they seem to mostly make kitchenware now, but have several subsidiaries that make kitchenware and some art and kiriko glass. Guessing these candle holders were made before their merger with Toyo Glass, maybe in the 1970s or 80s.
