Skull Jar and Goblet

I have no idea who made this most unusual marigold jar, nor do I know the size. This piece sold in 2010 for $200. Wonder what one would put in it? Cotton balls? Candy corn? Walnuts? Photo courtesy of Seeck Auctions.

This goblet or vase sold in 2021 for $110. It is 5 1/2 inches tall.
