Old or modern - how can you tell!

Hi we picked these for a very small price - but I have no idea if these are old or new. They seem to be handblown and are slightly differing in size  - any info would be appreciated!

New, imo, for the following combination of reasons: The stems look tapered, rather than straight or concave; the glass looks a greeny colour, rather than white or grey; the base diameter is smaller than the bowl diameter; there doesn't seem to be much wear on the base edges, but that may just be the photo; can't see a pontil scar on the base.
