This is a snuff bottle carved from a solid piece of precious Burma red ruby. The ruby is very hard to be carved. Comes with Jadeite stopper. Burma ruby was much more rare in Qing dynasty than today. It was made for someone with high social status and wealth. Height: 6.5 cm. Weight: 77 gram. Good condition with no damage.
