The body of the vases are hand decorated with landscapes with mountains and buildings to one side with a floral landscape with birds to the opposite side. These are contained within a surround of floral decorations applied on a decorative blue ground with a green and black pattern around the foot and floral design on a blue ground around the neck. Both vases have small mythical animals painted in green, yellow and black lying on either side of the shoulder. The vases have red Arita marks to the base.
