    They are both quite beautiful, clear crystal glass and frosted on the figures and on the bottom with the heads of either lions or dolphins. Each one is 11 7/8" tall, the figures are 5 3/4" bottom base is 4 3/4" wide. Each weighs 1 lb 11 0z. I had them on my fireplace mantel and they keep speaking to me to find out where they come from. Any help would be appreaciated

    I did list these on ebay and someone with a large collection of oil lamps sent me the information I was looking for. He said these are very scarce and the are Whale oil Lace Makers Lamps made before 1890.
