It is difficult to say whether these are English or Irish. They are very heavy and have a grey blue hue indicative of high lead content. The hue is associated with Irish glass from the period, though this is not enough to say they are certainly Irish. The cutting is of a very higher standard thus may have been undertaked in North-West England. Probably either honey or preserve jars.
