I think these jars (?) were manufactured by Owens-Illinois Co. by the O with the I in the center. There is also a 17 on one side and 71 on the other side. They each have a number at the bottom such as 1 or 7 etc. They look alot like the fiestaware by the colors, but they almost have a frosted look. I have searched and unable to find anything about them. Just wonder what they were used for and if they are vintage or antique and the value if anyone knows. Also, should they have lids. They definitly do not screw on. I thought maybe they were dresser jars or maybe spice jars..... Thanks for any help you can give me on these.

    I have no idea what they are, but I love them! Great colors! In my non-professional opinion, it looks like they are clear glass, and they are painted on the inside, giving them that frosted look.

    No they aren't painted on the inside. Seem to be some sort of glaze on the outside. I wonder if they could be dresser jars for creams maybe. Thy appear to be very old and in great condition. The lady I bought them from said they are fiesta ware, but they don't have a marking like that. I can't find them anywhere.

    Well the colors sure look like Fiesta Ware. I wonder if they were some sort of accessory pieces...? They are just lovely.
