Alley’s Oxblood ?

I’ve always thought these were Akro, but what do I know? 
 

Was just looking at an alley book I have and there does appear to be an alley ox just like this (although with the pic provided I can’t tell if it’s ox or not, (it does say amber and not Oxblood in the description), which means I’ll have to re-evaluate all of my Akro Oxblood swirls)). I thought alley only made Oxblood swirls with a blue and white opaque glass base (2nd pic).

This is an area that I am really interested, so this is good. The bottom grouping definitely looks like Akro Oxblood to me, if my brain is properly engaged this early.  That top one Alley but then again with oxblood it can be tricky to tell it by photographs.  The base glass appears to be different as well in the original post.

I think the first one is similar to some Alleys but the cuts look Akro. I'd probably have it with Akros. 

Chris, I think your handful is Akros for the most part but the one that jumps out as probably Alley is the one near the tip of your pinky finger.
