Smoked Glass Dessert dishes

Can anyone help identification of attached items?

Dessert server (d=9") and individual dishes (d= 4") and no visible marks on glass which has been in my family since at least the 1950's

Do you think they might be punch cups and serving bowl?

Just a thought

No, too shallow for punch cups

Also Reminded me of a nappy. Maybe more pictures would help?

It's a completely different sort of nappy. ;D
In the same way as American "pants" are not what we think they are, neither is "being peed" or carrying a "purse" ... and fa**y isn't even a rude word over there. :o

Edited to add; I've had to edit to add this bit, because this forum wouldn't let me use the American expression for being angry. It changed it to peed.
We all know it really means blind drunk.  :)

Hello
it reminds me of products from Polish glassworks
Huta Laura
Huta Ząbkowice
Huta Sudety
Look for Polish glass in the years 56-60 produced on the model of Duralex

greetings
Samantta
