Right hand side bottle,
It is a seven-character line poem written in literary Chinese
Inscription in my rough translation,
The old man did not spare any effort in learning,
and his ingenuity when he was young, was enough to be completed,
You realize that what you get from the books, in the end, a shallow thing, and you know that matters in practice.
The young boy who is holding his nose is depicted
in the pose of serious listening or learning.
