No apology needed. :)   Now you've seen my note I'll move this into the other topic for you.

I have to say i'm rather intrigued by the two little handled mugs with the coin pattern on, in different colours.
I'd love to see better images.  (hint, hint  ;) )
Is there purple in them, towards the top? Is the dark rim real and a sort of chocolatey purple?

Could they be? might they be? are they possibly... Webb's Alexandrite? :o :o :o

Even if they're just two-tone amberina, they're still rather interesting. :)

My guess would be an American version of amberina.

The dark rim was what bothered me, I haven't seen that on amberina, (not that I've seen much).
I was rather unsure about the quality of graduation. ;D
Sometimes, photos can alter the appearance of glass.
I perhaps got a little carried away.  ;D
