Clear glass needs different lighting and conditions around it for photography to coloured glass.
Plain backgrounds are essential for clear glass. (and best for coloured too)
Glass is a nightmare to photograph well.  ;D

Are they candle holders?

Kind of along the lines of these in terms of usage (perhaps different period of course):
