      They are bulls-eye window panes. They were mainly used for interior windows, a transition over top of a door, etc. I have a nice aqua rectangular one in my glass collection. In the early window glass factories, they blew out the glass in long tubes or sheets. The glass cutters came in and cut the sheets into different size panes. The pontiled pieces were the last ones cut as they were dead center of the sheet. These were used for areas where clear sight was not as important, like interior windows, stained glass mosaics, or above door ways. I just saw a beautiful ruby colored one over top a door in an old farmhouse in Mercer PA. In the evening the sun shines in and casts a beautiful ruby red glow across the front foyer.

      Nice little collection, based on the color I would say these are possibly American, New England or Pittsburgh, but most likely European. Spanish, German, maybe English. HOpe this helps.

      BHock45, Very interesting about the order in which various items were cut out of a sheet of glass.

      Some vintage bulls eye glass:

      It probably also needs to be said that the use of natural sunlight to illuminate interiors was important before the era of wide-spread electricity, so transoms were important.

      abdul_qadir8879, you are welcome!

      Yes, some very interesting colors there! You must be involved in some type of architectural salvage or did you acquire a collection? I can tell you that cranberry red one is very nice, nice swirls in there! The extra-large teal one is also nice, the one to the left of it has great color and so does the deep emerald green pane.

      Great collection!

      Thank you for your comments sir BHock45, this collection was acquired by my father, they're really good pieces, i think the whole collection would be worth something, what do you say?

      Abdul_Qadir8879, unfortunately, this is not the forum for valuating items, but I would agree they have some value. I would suggest going on to the bay and searching for "bullseye window panes? then on the left click off the "Sold" box. That should give you a good idea! I hope this helps!
