Hi there,

A friend of mine has a set of glass clown... candle holders or tumblers, or ?  There are 6 of them & you can tell they are a set, however, not one of them is exaclty the same.  I've never seen anything like them & we can't find anything like them to compare them to.  There doesn't appear to be any identifying marks on them.  We would like to know what they are or where they might have come from, but we aren't even sure what kind of glass they are.  Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.  

Pictures can be viewed at the following links:

Argh - they'd give me the heebie-jeebies - especially with candles in them!  :lol:

I think Italian might be a possibility for them. I think.
