Blue bud vases

Are they modern Italian or old French opaline? They have rough pontils and are slightly different in shape. They show some signs of age and were very dirty when I bought them.

Good question. I vote French, Portieux. Reason I have seen these quite frequently on markets in France, in bleu, in rose and in blanc. Timewise 1880s to 1930s is as close as I dare to frame it. But I have been wrong before, of course.

I was hoping they are French, they are a slightly darker blue than other French opaline I have seen which is why I thought they could be Italian. Im sure I have seen similar made by Stelvia or other empoli manufacturers.
