Mystery items

In the box our aunts sent there were 2 items that were something of puzzle.  Glass pieces that had handles and a convex top. 

I posted them on line at a site that specializes in identifying  antiques and such.  Every one said they were a child's toy.  Specifically a spinning top.


I thought glass was a poor choice for this toy.  So I remained unconvinced.

I posted the pictures with my friends on Google+ and again I was getting tops. Until my friend Phoenix showed me the light.

He was the only one that realized I had them upside down.

They are decorative glass mushrooms!  Thanks Phoenix!  This could have messed with my mind for years!
