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.
