Hi ,those are mostly Imperials ,Vacor ( Mega)and foreign Cats Eyes .Made between late 1980's to present .I do not see any with more age than that .
The one with the frit (pieces of glass) is a Vacor (Mega) Confetti .
Here are some black base(main color) Imperials ,there are yellow and green based ones also .[:)]

Thanks for the info Digs, now my next dumb question, I figure the clear green cats eyes are the foreign ones but which are the Imperials, Vacor etc (also got the confetti one figured). Thanks again for the info.
