Two Small Ink Bottles by Unknown Artist

These two ink bottles are possibly made by the same artist as they are similar in design and size. One is in a beautiful cobalt blue while the other has a mottled design in black over clear. Unfortunately they are both unsigned however I am confident that they are Australian made perhaps as end of day work or that of students.
