A pair of lime yellow glass bottomless bottles of baluster form, similarly decorated with an overlay of ruby red glass carved with blossoming branches of plum, the shoulder and foot bordered with a band of lappets, the mouth with a band of plum blossoms.

The bottoms have been completely removed from each bottle in order for them to be used as lanterns, taking maximum advantage of the beautiful translucent properties of the glass.
