Very fine and detailed reverse painting. Elegant size and shape. Carnelian stopper, bone spoon. This lovely snuff bottle is about 3 1/4" to top of stopper.

Beautiful blue glass base color with layering of multi colors. Multi colored cameo glass snuff bottles are more valuable and will continue to increase in value as this very nice one will. It has a matching cap with bone spoon. It is about 3" tall and was carved with in the last decade. Snuff bottles and other objects of art that require skill and time do not go down in value and are a good hedge against our economic struggles.

A very odd snuff bottle. Very high carving done on three layers of Peking glass. The top layer is yellow and almost 3/8" deep. Three heads of Monks or buddhas. Green and white layers underneath. Very nice artistic design. I have never seen one like this and it does stand out as a tiny piece of art. It has carnelian top with bone spoon. It is about 3 1/8" tall. I am not sure of age, I would estimate it is a decade old, or newer. Great item for a collection.

Chinese snuff bottles are a smart investment in a world loosing its fine craftsmen. China is loosing the older better reverse painters. Most newer work is quite horrible.

Of all of the Chinese artist the skilled interior painters seem to be the most endangered. I suggest this outstanding bottle as a smart investment in the ...click for details

Foo dog has baby on her back. This bottle is heavy with nice hollowing. It has a carnelian top and bone spoon. It is 3" long and a little over 1" high. A very nice bottle for the price.

This scoop took the master carver over a week of work to finish. It is outstanding, from one piece of hard fruit wood. It was made as a scoop, but it is a work of art that would stand alone in any fine collection. The details are incredible, the carving is incredible and the piece is incredible. It is 4" long and about 1 1/2" at its height. There will soon be no more skilled carvers in China, and top quality pieces such as this will gain in value.
