They look like those usually brown glass *whatever they're called* that you get in Spain for pouring sangria into your mouth.  I had a rather merry time with one of those once.  ;) :)

Edit:  Called a Porron I think?

I am not a man

I think they're a bit small for porrons Max, but they are the same shape

The Spaniards also use 'em for oil and vinegar.  In this size, that'd be my bet, though I know there are some "single-serving" pieces used to serve wine from the barrel by the bar and restaurant trade.

Not sure that they're necessarily very old, either. 
There are a lot of Spanish workshops making things out of recycled glass, and their pieces are sometimes deceptively old-looking.

Sorry to be a cold shower,
Chris

Hi

Thanks for replys, I am not sure of age but would say without doubt Victorian, when held up to a UV light they glow quite a bright yellow / green, even though being in a clear glass as did much similar Victorian glass, they also show signs of striation lines / marks similar to some Georgian glass
