Each sturdily cast in double lozenge section tapering towards the base and surmounted by waisted necks beneath fitted lids supporting elaborate pieced finial edifices rendered as stylized fluttering tassels, the exterior surfaces covered in a dense vine and lotus ground surrounding ba jixiang motifs and crane roundels above the large side panels depicting the flowers of the four seasons against a ground of repeating cash motifs, now mounted in modern gilt lacquered soft wood stands.
