A pleasing cube of blue and yellow hues. The designs are nicely acid etched. There are only two layers of coloured glass but they have been cut back in a manner that maximises their potential. The acid etching has turned the two colours, blue and yellow, into brown, green, yellow, blue and purple due to the mixing of cutting depth.

Those parts that are not acid etched at all have ended up brown. The parts that have had a small amount off acid etching, but not enough to remove all the blue layer, have ended up green. The areas where all the blue has been stripped back reveal the yellow layer underneath. The blue and purple of the flowers is created by acid etching the yellow away from the inside of the piece, allowing light to pass through unadulterated before hitting the top blue layer. This technique was used to great effect throughout Galle's years of producing cameo glass.
