Tim, they are fine here. You know they are German,  so we'll leave them for a wee while. If no-one can help then we'll move them into Glass in case they've been missed here.
Cheers! Anne, da tekniqual wizzerd

I would think Ilmglas Ilmenau is a strong contender as they did coloured glass - but must admit I've never seen these before.

Possibly just a few km away in the Lauscha region otherwise. The colours are very typical for
lampworked glass also.

GDR means german democratic repuplic, so this for sure in the Lausitz area. They are well known in lamp blowing Glass. Mostly very thin and light. So I think they are from Lauscha or Bimini. That also means that they are before the wall falls.

I wonder if they share the same maker as these: https://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,61422.0.html
