A white jade snuff bottle
Beijing Palace Workshops, Qianlong period, 乾隆 1736 1795
Height: 6 cm.

White nephrite, of elongated shield form with a flaring neck and carved with double-loop handles on either side with a suspension cord ending with a small arrow-shape jade of russet color, the narrow base concave, each side similarly carved in low-relief with a stylized archaistic mask.

This fine bottle displays all the characteristics that would qualify a bottle as imperial: flawless white jade and a delicate form with archaistic design, attributes that were in fashion at the Qianlong court. For a similar bottle, see Hugh Moss, Victor Graham and Ka Bo Tsang, A Treasury of Chinese Snuff Bottles: The Mary and George Bloch Collection (Hong Kong: 1998), vol. 1 Jade, cat. no.83.

Provenance 起源: Linda F. Crawley

Published 发布: Asiantiques, A Fascination for Miniatures: The Linda F. Crawley Collection of Chinese Snuff (2008), cat. no. 1
