This is a finely carved and molded Rock Hair crystal Snuff Bottle in the form of a double gourd. A bat with spread wings under a hanging circular decoration is carved on both sides of the bottle. The transparency of the tea-colored crystal enables the thin brownish color criss-crossed hairs to be seen in a dramatic way. The bottle rests on a raised footing. It comes with a milk chocolate and black hardstone stopper. This excellent and interesting looking bottle is in remarkable preserved condition. Bottle Measurements Height: 1.95 inches (4.9cm) - not including stopper Width: 1.52 inches (3.8cm) Thickness: 0.71 inches (1.8cm) Weight: 1.4 ounces
