    These two I have no idea, but are foods of some sort.  One on left looks like the worlds largest umbrella ink, with the Owens mark high center of the base, 4 on the left, 8 on the right, 3 below.  Base of lip on the right has tic marks around like to aid in sealing, embossed with Anchor Hocking logo on base.

    The numbers on either side of the logo on the bottom of your Owens jar do mean something.  I believe the number on the left indicates the plant of manufacture and the number on the right is the last digit of the year of manufacture.  Therefore, you don't have a way of knowing if the jar is from 1928 or 1938, but sometimes you can narrow it down by what the Owens logo looks like.  I think the number below the logo is simply a mold number.  I'm pretty sure all that info was in an AB&GC article by Tom Caniff within the last few years.  I could be wrong though.
    The tumbler on the right looks to be a jelly jar, a lot of these were meant to be used as a drinking glass after the jelly was gone.  They are both product jars of course, but without labels it's pretty hard to go any further.  -Tammy

    I'd say you're right with 1938

    Most of the stuff in this dump has been 30s with a few early 40s things, so 1938 is probably right on the money.  My daughter has already told me how cool the "glass" was, so after a trip through the dishwasher, she'll own it.   Thanks!
