This long and slender carved tortoise shell snuff bottle is an early 20th century product. It depicts a PiXiu (貔 貅 or 辟 邪) sitting on the top of rocky mountain, surrounded by clouds. PiXiu is a Chinese mythical creature that is considered to be a very powerful protector regarding the practice of Feng Shui. Not only can it protect an individual or a family, it will also draw wealth from all directions. It is 3 7/8” long, 1 ½” wide and ¾” in depth. It has a lapis lazuli cap and carved horn spoon. It is in great condition.
