Wow!! awesome find!! clean them good. Don't boil them but instead put them in a bucket and dump some boiling water over them quite a few times to make sure they don't introduce anything bad into your tank. Show us pics once u add them to your tank please!!

Pretty cool! They almost look like clay drainage pipes that have had deposits form around them.

Looks great! Did you determine its inert? Might be a good idea to test your water in a day or so and make sure everything is the same

They look like old drainage or sewage pipes - the glaze it typically a salt glaze but totally vitrified so ok. Looks great in your tank!
