Aluminium canisters with screw-top lids?  >:D
Possibly designed to have a string tied around in the groove near the neck.
One has a hole worn in the bottom that I can see. Not very practical!

I've got an old glasses case in aluminium they remind me of, just a little.....

Something made of British or Irish glass I'd guess!  Too wide for thermometers?  Maybe something military?  Can we have some clues?

Thingies for testing the specific gravity of a liquid, like we use for wine-making, but I've forgotten what they are called!  :pb:

Oh dear... and here I thought they had something to do with toilet or pool issues. :-[   Obviously no connection with glass there.

Slightly off-topic here but when doing a wee Google search for these items I found these interesting items

Could be quite collectable I reckon.
