Glass study

This green glass bottle is from my mom's old home up on a mountain in Western Japan.  Until over 40 years ago, her family had tons of these and used it for housekeeping stuffs (perhaps for making their own saki?).  But it was so common that nobody paid any heed and the bottles were abandoned in the back yards, from where my mom picked up one.  Wish they still have these, but unfortunately no.

I cut out the hen in the green glass some years ago.  Mom kept it and put it in a glass.

This gold/amber glass pot is from Okinawa (I am not so sure) which my grandpa bought as a souvenir before I was born.
