Yep...both are WWI. I think the screw-top is a pattern 1914 (although someone will likely correct me if I'm wrong) and the one with the chain attached to the cork is pre-war. I used to have an identical example and it was unit-marked and dated 1895.

The first one is the M1907 mounted troops pattern (with loops on the sides of the cover). It is missing it's shoulder sling. The second is the pattern 1893. Both types were used in the First World War.

Yes, if the cover has leather loops on the sides they are for the over-the-shoulder sling. At the beginning of the war, only the Feldartillerie was wearing this style canteen, but in September the Bavarians extended it's use to their cavalry division. The Prussians and Saxons soon followed with their own decrees for their cavalry field units. This is all explained in Kraus's "Die feldgraue Uniformierung des deutschen Heeres 1907-1918".
