Hello, I'm new here - having recently developed a vintage glass habit over the past few months! 

I've been collecting mostly Scandinavian pieces, but I was so taken with these two little vases I could not resist. I can only guess they are Italian, but otherwise I have no idea as to origin. Any ideas?

Each is blown of extremely thin glass, with the mottled colours translucent and slightly opalescent in spots. For the sand-coloured vase the base is hollow. They measure 8" and 6" high respectively. I am located outside of Vancouver, BC.   

Thank you!

Hello and welcome, the first one reminds me of pieces made in Israel copying ancient glass, the second I'm not so sure  ;D ;D

Thank you, Keith - you are spot on!

They are very similar to these below, especially the first photo. So mystery somewhat solved at likely Israeli contemporary.

The decor at the bottom of the other one looks consistent with the other, but another maker of similar delicate lampwork is Lauscha of Germany.
