Primary Description: 
Marbleized red brown and yellow-green non-lead glasses; mold-blown, cut, engraved, stained. Square cross-section, rounded sides; polished flat top; the sides probably cut, then stained, then engraved through the stain in a stylized, simplified floral pattern, outlined with gilding: a lotus-like flower on one face, foliage and a bud on a sinuous stem on an adjacent side, a leaf wrapping around the corner of a third side, and another bud on sinuous stem on the fourth side, polished flat base; the edges chamfered.
