This glass inside painting snuff bottle is 3 1/2" high, 2 1/2" wide and 1 1/2” thick. The bottle has a dark agate cap. The snuff bottle is dated 1998. The title of the snuff bottle is “One Hundred Butterflies.” The artist’s name is Song Shi. Song Shi began his art career making cloisonné. Later on, he studied under Wang Guan–Yu, a recognized master of creating inside painting snuff bottles. Song Shi is well known for his figures, landscape and historical scenes. Recently, he has developed his own contemporary style and placed first in a couple of inside painting competitions in China. Even though the bottle is small, all those butterflies are very colorful and realistic. The snuff bottle is well hollowed and is in great condition.
