a green-colored flowerpot-shaped frosted glass candleholder, style number SM9245, which measures approximately 2 5/8 inches in height with an open top diameter of 2 ½ inches and an interior base diameter of 1 ¼ inches.
an orange-colored bell-shaped glass candleholder, style number SM9246, which measures approximately 3 ½ inches in height with an open top diameter of 2 ¾ inches and an interior base diameter of 1 ¼ inches. Its body is encompassed by lengthwise transparent wavy-like motifs.
a cylinder-shaped frosted glass candleholder, style number SM9275, which measures about 3 inches in height with an open top diameter and a base diameter of 2 ¼ inches. Its exterior is decorated with 4 jewel-like glass pieces, encircling its midsection and measuring about 1 inch in length, that are encompassed by a string crisscrossing around the circumference, in addition to another string circling the rim.
flower-shaped glass candleholders, style numbers SM9279 and SM9290, which measure about 1 ¾ inches in height by 5 1/8 inches at the widest point with the interior base measuring nearly 1 1/8 inches in diameter. The subject candleholders, being green and light purple-colored, respectively, feature a rim of six petals extending outward.
a light blue-colored glass candleholder, style number SM9274, which measures about 1 ½ inches in height by 4 ½ inches at its widest dimension with an interior base of 1 ½ inches. It features a rim that is scalloped in such a manner to impart the effect of a flower petal-like exterior.
