An outstanding snuff bottle. Beautiful Serpentine Jade. Wonderful carving with 2 li Dragons as handles. Key design on bottom rim. Bone spoon. This bottle is 3" tall, 1/2" thick and well hollowed out. It looks much more expensive than my price now, and I am sure it will do better than the stock market as a term investment and something wonderful to look at while it grows in value. Not new, it is probably at least a few decades old.
