2 canisters, maker unknown: Orzel (or Royal Oak)? Empty second thoughts

And then again, maybe they are Royal Oak.

The brown glaze is a good match for the Orzel lidded canisters

but the shape is a good match for these (below, two different sizes) 2 canisters, maker unknown: Orzel (or Royal Oak)? 2p0ts10
which, despite masquerading as Orzel with those cheeky drips, I know to be Royal Oak because this one (left below) has glaze to match the Royal Oak mug (right). 2 canisters, maker unknown: Orzel (or Royal Oak)? 1pot1c10

All together now... 2 canisters, maker unknown: Orzel (or Royal Oak)? 4pots10

Jeremy has raised a tricky issue here, and I am adding this note so hopefully I will remember to come back to it.   There is very little difference between Orzel and Royal Oak kitchen cannisters/spice jars.  It is possible to differentiate when the glazes are specific to one manufacturer, or when the Royal Oak ware has the distinctive 'smear' of glaze on the base.  However - some glazes, especially the mid-browns, are very similar in both Royal Oak and Orzel.
The two pale cannisters with dark brown tops (under ' Second thoughts") are definitely Royal Oak. The others are probably Orzel but I can't guarantee that.
