A fine carved multi-color Peking glass snuff bottle. We attribute this bottle to the 19th c. Qing dynasty. This fine bottle is shaped as a melon or gourd with vines of red beans or pepper wrapping around the body. Crowning the mouth rim are leaves. The bottle is layered in 3-colors of glass: rich red, over olive green over a white ground. The yellowish-green stopper appears to be hardstone. The bottle has a wonderful tactile feeling smooth feeling and finish.
