Those are European style screw cap oil bottles. While USA oil bottles are usually quart size, Europe has smaller sizes.

Are those decals or are the logo's fired on paint. If they are decals I would be a little skeptical as the decals are near mint while the bottle caps show a lot more wear. Bottles also appear to be shaped like foreign ketch up or pop bottles.

I have not seen foreign oil bottle shaped like that also why would the two bottles have different style caps. These are just a few observations as I have no direct knowledge if they are real or not.
