Peking Pair

Two 19th century Chinese vases in an archaic "Gu" form. Someone told me this color glass is referred to as "Duck Fat Yellow" - a bit off-putting and yet entirely accurate. Does that place these from the "Duck Dynasty"? Sorry, I couldn't resist! But, in all seriousness, these are likely from the Qing Dynasty, circa 1850s.
6.5" each
