White Jade Snuff
Extremely fine Chinese white jade snuff bottle, this is the 3rd bottle of a group of 10, the second grouping from of a small local collection of Chinese snuff bottles in Jade, Porcelain, Quartz, Glass and Lacquer that I am selling here on eBay a few at a time. I believe this bottle is 18th or 19th century, the collection was assembled in the mid 20th century, but the best bottles are from a much older collection.
This pale greenish white jade bottle is very well hollowed, beautifully carved. In perfect condition it shows a traveler and attendant in a landscape carved in high relief on one side; a short poem and signature plaque in low relief on the other. This is the finest quality jade snuff I have ever owned. There is no top, but an elongated bone spoon accompanies it. There is a rectangular molded rosewood stand.
HEIGHT BOTTLE 2 inches ( 5 cm )
WEIGHT 53.9 grams
This small collection of snuffs is being sold with no reserve beyond the opening bid of 9.99.
Very careful packaging is part of my shipping cost to anywhere in the continental USA or elsewhere. If you desire to have your purchased insured, I am happy to do so if you request it, but that would be at your cost. International buyers should contact me for paying if you require special handling or insurance for your purchases. Please feel free to email me if you need additional information or images. Good Luck!
