It would be possible to be both I suppose  ;D

Sorry, are they tumblers or vases.  I can't pin the size just based on the photo.  How tall?

I had something rather similar a year or two back  -  and in the panic of needing space, eventually gave the thing away.  See the attached.    I came to the conclusion quite possible Italian, and mine also had this 'vortex' type of colour spiral into the base.  I also came to think that mine was quite modern but copying something much older.  Beyond that I am unable to add anyting more positive - sorry. :)

...  and in the panic of needing space...

I'm way past panic  ;D

So it's a tumbler set.  If not siblings they looks like close cousins.  I go to a lot of estate sales, garage sales etc.  I've seen similar that were marked made in italy but also seen similar made in asia.  I couldn't tell the difference really, some old, some at the local decorator store.  Hard to tell with some.  Looks like yours have an nicely finished lip.  I lean towards somewhere in europe.  Use them.  Enjoy them.

I think they're rather lovely.  Could move to the Murano board soon if you like?   :)
