Hello

You have couple of pieces of SEETUSEE made by Mayfair Enterprises of Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Canada.  They were in business from 1965 to the mid 1980s and their psychedelic leather backed products are starting to become collectable.  Here is a short article that I wrote for Glass Facts summarizing their history and products:

 :hiclp: :hiclp: :hiclp: :thup:  Nice to see that some Canadian Glass is over there !!

Called SEETUSEE Glassware by Mayfair (made in ) Portage la Prairie (near Winnipeg, Manitoba) in the 60's or so.  Always has a pigskin backing painted *Gold* and usually marked.

As a cross reference to your items -- here is a link to some items I have collected here (in Canada) too.  I just keep adding ones that I find too as to Design style, colors, patterns, and shapes too.

See here:  http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,31588.0.html

Keep Collecting it, as it is a Unique Collectible Glassware that is Vintage, and made here in Canada!!
