Chinese Light Bulbs?

'Found these "Chinese" light bulbs many, many years ago. I thought they were really cool although I never tried to plug them in to see if they worked. 

I love to bring them out at Christmas in different arrangements. The paint is beginning to wear on them, some more than others. 

This year I decided to put them into a vintage wooden box. 'Not sure what this box was for. I think it was some type of sifter or strainer since it has a metal bottom in it with holes like you find on the small hole side of a grater.  I should have taken a picture of it before I made the arrangement.

I have five light bulbs in three different colors - blue, yellow, and a turquoise.

I added greens and some red berries to the mix.

My second yellow bulb is losing its paint, but that's OK, makes them more precious.

I added rose hips to the bottom of the mason jars and then inserted votive candles.
