The base is obvious, but the top (???) The opening at the bottom seems to narrow to go over a candle. I wonder what this could have originally been?

I recognize the top, but the base seems a bit odd with the hole in the bottom -- like it was intended to hold a taper candle. Do wish the seller would mention the broken top petal in his description ....

Item 1 is a gas or electric lamp shade. You see them quite often on eBay mistakenly identified as fairy lamp shades. They come in several colors.

Item 2 is probably part of a larger piece. The hole in the bottom suggest it had a stem at one time. The following webpage will help to explain the type of piece it may have come from:

Some of these designs are probably posey holders and some are candle burmers.
