Fine antique Guangxu Chinese snuff bottle made of porcelain molded as an ear of corn. Late Qing. Matched later composite top with bone spoon, well shaped. You can tell easily the age of this one since the details of each seed is molded & shaped into the porcelain. The later ones have painted outlines. Also the footrim is different... the older ones have sharp well defined rims like this one. See similar p.133, #98, of "Snuff Bottles in the Collection of the National Palace Museum".

3" high, very good condition. Shanghai wax chop from the 70- early 80s when early snuff bottles were still available.
