Are these antique blown pitchers or retros?

So, I was at an antique store today near Gettysburg. I know a lot about bottles, but little about blown glass pitchers and little info available online for them. I was going to buy them but wasn't quite sure if they were more modern examples or actual mid 1800s pitchers. The tallest is about 8 inches tall in this group. All have pontils on the bottom and even some pretty convincing light wear scratches on them. However, my skepticism with them is that in Jamestown, I know they reproduce similar pitchers and elsewhere in the country they've been reproducing this type of glass at least since the 1960's. Does anyone know anything about glass pitchers, if so, Id love to know because I'm def going to go back and pick these up if I know they are mid 1800s and not modern repros.
