A molded pottery snuff bottle with a soft medium blue glaze. The bottle modeled with in low relief with a design of flowers in a reserve on both sides of the bottle - the reserves framed by geometric curve on the sides and anchored by circles of dots top and bottom. Two handles on the sides and a raised pedestal foot accentuate the bottle which is in a flattened form. The bottle measures just over 2 5/8" high and is 1 3/4" wide at the waist by 3/4" thick. Excellent condition with no cracks - a very tiny chip at the top rim and another tiny chip on the foot. We date this bottle to the mid 19th century.
