Hi Salesbig,

Welcome to the Board.

You will see that I have (with my Moderator hat on) changed the title of your thread and moved it into the Scandinavian forum, as the main ID is known. I have also deleted the duplicate topic you posted in the USA forum. Having the same post in more than one place gets very confusing - Mods will move the one post around according to need as information is added.

Hopefully, one of the folks knowledgeable on Scandi items will soon come up with the answer as to what the items are. (They look a bit like "bronze age torques" to me, but I really know nothing of this sort of thing.)

Try asking directly at   http://www.marcolinartcrystal.com/pages/contact.htm  as Marcolin were the makers of FM Ronneby.  Ronneby is a town in Sweden.  Presumably the M in FM refers to Marcolin.

There is a huge thread here on a Swedish forum about FM Konstglas, there may be some useful info for you buried in there but it will take some browsing: http://precisensan.com/antikforum/showthread.php?87-FM-Konstglas-Ronneby

I'd imagine they're some sort of table decoration. Plonk a candle stick or posy of flowers in the middle.
