    Iím embarrassed to say how long Iíve had this

    My son, now eight years old, bought these round glass objects for me a handful of years ago for Christmas. He had gone into a shop with money to shop for my wife and myself. He was guided by well-intentioned ladies and came out with these donut-shaped glass pieces. The only wording they have on them is from a sticker that says ďMade in China.Ē Thereís a small, round hole in each, perhaps for a wick of some sort? Click image for larger version.

    This is my guess. - They were made to be filled small materials like colored sand or something similar and used to hold candles.
