Have you seen lot number 344? The catalog calls them-

"BRASS AND JEWELED FLOATING LAMPS, consisting of a square and a circular saucer base with figural leaf finger hold, multi-color jeweled swing cup holders, colorless and red contemporary inserts. 3 3/4" h overall, 4 3/4" x 5 3/4", and 3 7/8" h overall, 5 3/4" dia overall. Undamaged with very minute wear. Provenance: From the collection of the late Shirley Reesbeck. Estimate: 50.00 - 75.00

These are like R-307 and R-309. They have glass cup inserts in them. One is clear and the other is red.

That's a nice pair. I can't help but wonder if the glass inserts are original. They appear to be different sizes.

If the inserts are original, the clear one is understandable. But why have colored jewels and a colored insert? The combination of the colors would wash-out the colors, and they do apear to be different sizes (but that could just be the way they have been inserted).
