Hi Nick,
the one with the cross looks like Belgian/Val St Lambert,

kind regards, Erhard/Austria

I bid on these, but not a lot!

I agree with Erhard: the 'Val St Lambert' one looks like Belgian, but I would say not Val St Lambert.: the torsdade is too messy.  There were many fairly competent glass factories in Belgium during the 19th century, and it could be from one of those.

I feel sure that the Victoria head cane weight is Old English, but I do not think it is a Bacchus.  I have seen several weights with these or similar canes, and no canes in them overlap with classic Bacchus canes. Indeed, I once owned two large concentrics with similar canes, and a Queen's Head cane in the middle of each.  I think it is an 'unknown factory' piece: maybe one day we will get evidence to pin them down to a maker.

Thanks both, I hadn't thought of Belgium.
I was watching too Alan just in case they stayed low,but not knowing the makers I didn't bid on these when the bidding went too high I thought.
The Queens head weight looked too untidy to be Bacchus to me too.
