Help me identify old pottery.

Can you help me identify these two pieces of greek art, possibly located in Boston? Figure 1 - Figure 2

I need a catalogue number, a location, something. They're described, respectively, as "Boston vase" (see here) and "Boston amphora" (see here), so I'd guess they could be from Boston's Museum of Fine Arts. But I didn't find them in the museum's collection search.
My google-fu is failing. Can you help me? Can you help me search better next time?
Thanks, hive mefi.

Looks like this is the vase, and I believe this is the (partially restored) amphora.

Here is a 1907 article on the amphora; see plate XIII for a match of your image.
