I could be wrong but i presume these are Italian? They are good quality.

Any ideas please?

I would say Empoli - but I do not like the overall acid satination, which is what comes out of China now. If Empoli I would expect the foot to be twisted and clear, and the body to be cased and satinated, not the whole thing dunked in hydrofluoric. Of course, Nason did as well, so you may be lucky....

Not sure why but the ball shaped one has an unusual raised dimple on the foot with a tool mark (like those found on Murano clowns).

Well, if Alrose decanters have inny nipples then this one has an outty nipple.  :24:
