br>A fine carved Peking Glass snuff bottle. We attribute this snuff bottle to the early 20th c, ca.1920. This bottle is layered and carved of white or violet blue over a celadon ground base. The decoration is of 2 similar scenes of 3-sheep, in a rocky field with a cloud cradling a pearl. The bottle sits on a short and rounded foot rim. The snuff bottle has a soft wonderful tactile finish and feel. The carnelian stopper may be a later addition.
