This particular bottle has a slightly yellowish transparent main color, dipped into red glass, with carvings of beautiful flowers and leaves on vines, carried by two robed men, with intricate detailing on their clothing and faces. Topper is made from brass and has 6 imbedded pieces of coral. 19th century Size: 2.75" tall, 1.5" wide
