Hi: Thanks for the welcome. I think I may have this now.  Let's try.  This picture is of a butter dish bottom I think. The pink color is funny and it seems to have been applied after the glass was made.  Seems some has washed off but what remains seems like it will stay.

This second pic is of a wire wrapped blown glass holder. Lots of bubbles in the glass.  The glass is formed around and takes the shape of the wire. The wire has rusted a bit in between glass and wire. The top seems to have been cut by hand.. Not a smooth edge

i have a feeling that the wire cage glass (garden light?) , while loosely based on a French egg basket design, is a recent product out of India.
