The orange wedding vase is "V" shaped without a distinct body, but with two large necks that are joined with a strap. There is a black design in a "U" shape. From the facing left, the design consists of three narrow black triangles, a key-like pattern in the center, and a large black rectangle with two orange semicircles.
