I think this was called a "bar anchor".  If I remember correctly (no guarantee), the drinker had a chain attached from a finger to the anchor, and the anchor was on the floor or on the table.  One looks to be a generic post-WWII item, and the other is named to a USS Blackhawk sailor.  


I forgot to include a scale in the photos.  The "SHANGHAI CHINA 1948" one is about 3 1/2" tall, with the flutes being about 2 1/2" tall.  The "W W HAMILTON U.S.S. BLACKHAWK ASIATIC FLEET-CHEFOO-CHINA-1939" is about 4 1/2" tall, with the flutes being about 3" tall.


They could also just be a generic sailor souvenir.


Take care,
