Every so often my local auction has some glass that i can't resist - and this is some of my latest haul. I'd love any info or guesses about them as I have no idea, neither having any identifying marks.

The blue pair are each 19" tall.  Yes, 19"! and 4" in diameter both with ground pontils and both seem new(ish), no wear marks. I haven't seen anything quite like them before and wonder if they are modern Chinese or European.  Whatever, they just make me smile.

The second vase is pink and blue swirls twisted round in the blowing.  Sorry, I'm sure there is a more technical description than that.  It too has a ground pontil.  I thought at first it was Caithness, but it is bigger and more organic looking than anything I've seen of theirs before. It's 9" tall.
