Look a bit like something called Chinese Lanterns - depends on size.
Good picture of them whatever they are, Isabel.

Had to smile that V3 had green it it... Did you open it to look inside...was it a soft covering or a hard husk . So basically I have no idea eitherGrin

Other than seed pods, my searches have found nothing to match - well spotted and captured.

Peter's right, we have them here, always known as Chinese lanterns. No idea of the genus. Well spotted. Peter.

Great colour and texture Isabel, not too good at flower and plant ID, or I would go further and say flaming useless.

Looks a bit like a long Chinese Lantern, Isabel.

Sorry, no good with plants, Isabel.
Super sharp images for those who are good at botany though!

To me, they look like what we have called Japanese lanterns. I grew them once......not for long. They are terribly invasive. And beautiful. Great shots, Isabel.
