I rather think that the glass ones were meant for mantle display, side-on, whilst the metal ones were hearth companions for much closer to the fire.

Yep, I agree. 

I have also discovered that my iron ones were painted once upon a time, and in such a finish they would have looked great on a mantlepiece with the hollow side facing the wall.  In fact they look rather lost anywhere else.
