This is a really awesome one of a kind rare tealight or votive with what looks like bronze wire that frames the handmade leaves holding them in place. The inside votive is clear and has a mark on the bottom that looks like it could be an L, T, or R, but I'm not sure. The 4 leaves are 2 red, one yellow, and one orange. One leave, the yellow one, has a crack in it, but is still held securely in place by the framing. Other than that it is in great shape...

It measures 3 and 5/8 inches tall, and 2.75 inches across the bottom. It has some bubble and wrinkles from the forming process. It is a lovely handmade piece of art glass.

This is a beautiful blue hand painted art glass elephant enameled in rich colors like peach, pink, red, blue, yellow, and coral. The way the top edge is shaped it looks like it might have been made as a cigar holder, but looks unused. It is outlined in bright gold gilding. It is marked Royo. The research that I have done on this art glass piece says it was made by Jose Cirera (or Cire) Royo a Catalan artist of Catalonia Spain. The glass itself most likely from Gordiola Glass Works...
