The blue glass in the iron sleeve is Spanish as far as I know, and was made in the 1980s.  It comes in a large range of decanters, shot glasses, table votives etc. Not sure who made these specifically - but I suspect it may be Lafiore production.

Wiktor Berndt items have a very high quality, and you'll immediately recognise the quality if you handle one. Sleeves are high quality copper - not crudely made iron.

 ;D I sort of like the crudely made iron sleeves. They look primitive.

...Lol, Sounds like these vases or votives are probably just more cheap junk.
 :'( I have lots of cheap junk. Someday I'll get my hands on a good piec of glass.
Never trade a diamond for a brick. No matter how bad you need a brick.

There is plenty of expensive, wel made junk too, better to go with your heart - a lot more people collect cheap glass than expensive glass. Junk is in the eye of the beholder.
