  • Do you know the maker/is there any distinguishing marks on the bottom? I think you should research them a little as refurbishing may decrease their value. If you find that they are not worth much, you could then perhaps paint them over ( I think a metallic might look nice.)
  • Wow! I think they are lovely as is. Check for maker marks and see if they have any value. If not, paint or modpodge away!

    Hi Alisa. They are beautiful. You could glue a plate to the top of them. Then you could make a candle arrangement on them, put fruit on them, use as a cake or cupcake server.

    Don't do a thing with them if you don't like them I'll trade you for cut like glass ones

    I agree - I would confirm that they're copies first, and I would either leave them as is, or use clear silicone caulk to mount them on a fiestaware-style plate (cobalt or yellow) with pretty tea cups or something to use as jewelry holders, or a smaller plate to use for kitchen display/storage.

    I don't even like the style, but they strike me as truly fine examples!

    Do not touch them. They are beautiful. Sell them if you don't like them. Check for hall marks.

    I love them! Would buy. However, you could always make them legs to a glass platter. But I would love to have them!

    Actually they're quite outstanding and unusual. they could be used as legs for a small display or desert stand if you don't like them for candles, but before you detroy them, make sure someone else doesn't desire them as-is.

    Lamps would be cute. Look up It's value on ebay.

    One was broken and some sort of silver solder was used to repair it. I am sure that lowered any value it may have previously had.
