Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

Anybody Recognize These?

I'm hoping one of you out there in cyberland can help me identify these unusual little glass dishes.

I found these at the Goodwill store several weeks ago, and their unusual color and delicacy impressed me as something a cut above the ordinary. They have the iridescence of carnival glass, but are very light and thin. Small, too. They stand 3 inches tall, and have no markings. Did I make a good find, or are they just attractive modern cheapos? I'm not even sure what they are for! Could they be cordial glasses? Or perhaps for serving sherbet or ices?

If you can help me figure it out, I'd certainly appreciate it! So far my Google image searches have proved unfruitful.
