sadly not, although i have had cliff items in the past. the items you refer to ,are actualy childrens tea set items, with the exception of the one at front, which is part of a dolls house set.
these turn up quite frequntly. and in large numbers.

Thanks for sharing your collection....I also have a few bottles....mostly medicine bottles and a couple poison bottles.....they all came from my dad who dug them up when he was a kid....he & his brothers found an old well, that was used as a dump in the late 1800's.....he also found some Benjamin Franklin glasses still with the lenses and in the case.....I know about where this well is....

Also, a few weeks ago I went to a site where they just recently moved a house ad found a bottle that was patented in 1927 (I believe, could be 1929)can't recall the designer's name right now...anyway, the bottle was under a pile of bricks, i guess the freshly dug ground made a cushion for it....no chips in it at all
