HI peter,
Any idea of age of these? Also what does the bottom of the 1 say?

Hi Jenna,
No, these are common items. It is only the mark that appeared a bit too small, but I could enlarge it, so I'm pretty sure it is an apocryphal Kangxi mark, as I said.

Do you want more pics?

Hi peter,
thanks for getting back to me. Do you want me to take more pictures? would that help to understand the pieces better?

Those without glaze on shoulder and neck are late Qing dynasty items, those with glaze may be either late Qing or republic items.
The mark seems to be a spurious Kangxi mark used on export items at the time (the picture is a bit small).
