It is easy to distinguish between appliqué glass and carved overlay glass.
The contours of the appliqué glass are round toward the inside of the connection, forming a sharp connection; to be clear, if it is a leaf, the border looks going underneath the leaf. Carved glass is rounded toward the background glass. The pictures are too small for judging it clearly, but I agree with Joey, it looks applied glass especially looking at the pink leaves in the last picture.
Dear John, I like your last swimming dragons bottle, with dragons emerging from waves.
Kind regards
