The bottles come in three shapes - square, heart and tapered. The measurements are approximately three and one-half inches, four inches and six inches in height, respectively. The rectangular-shaped plastic box measures approximately four inches by three inches by two inches.

The purpose of the set is first to paint assorted patterns and designs on the glass bottles and plastic box and then to display these decorative articles.

The essential character of the set is imparted by the glass bottles.
