I found these glasses in a thrift shop and was not able to find them on-line.  I was wondering if anyone might know anything about them.  They each have a little picture and a date from the 1960s or 1970s.  The pictures are of nursery rhymes like the princess and the pea or Christmas scenes.

They have a gold rim and edge at the base the rim also has a pine cone like shape with stars.  

The glass that is from 1973 is marked HG3 on the bottom which with my research on-line I think that is Holmegaard 1973.

I have attached a picture.  I'm curious about what they are and what the value might be.

Thank you.

They've 'Amager' series cordials, designed by Jacob E. Bang in 1955 - originally for Kastrup Glas, but production continued after the 1965 Kastrup-Holmegaard merger.

The decoration is not original to Bang's design, but it will have been adapted to a later annual Christmas series, with one design being released each year.
