Help identify cups

I bought these a local thrift shop to use in a dinner party. It's driving me crazy that I can't figure out the pattern. Any help would be appreciated.

I would suggest going to eBay & searching both L.E. Smith & Anchor Hocking as they were by far the most prolific manufacturers of pressed glass punch bowl sets. Use the search terms L E Smith punch bowl cups (currently 38 auctions) & then Anchor Hocking punch bowl cups (currently 320 auctions) to try & find a match to yours. I have to say though that there are several hundred pressed glass punch bowl patterns by both companies as these are mass produced commercial utilitarian glass so it may take you a couple of weeks to find a match or you may be fortunate & find a match right away.  Yours seem to be a type of daisy & button pattern, however there are many variations of daisy & button but at least this should put you on the right track.
