Yes, they are. BUT, Here's the bad news, they have been decapitated. I'll try to repair tops if I can. LEON.

Oof, still not as bad as this hutch I found a few days ago. It's actually less than half a bottle, there is no bottom or back. I hold it in such a way for this photo so it looks a bit more whole than it is, but it's really just a shard. There is no hope of repair for this :D

Great scores, Leon, even without the tops, especially for that price.

Got them on ebay. Mint these are expensive, like as much as $1,000.00. Got these for under $30 each.
Do you have any broken tops similar to the originals? My buddy had a guy in Florida repair his ( using epoxy ), he sent along a broken top for the fellow to use as a mold. Here's the result:
