This round shape gold hair (acicular) crystal is 3 ¼ inches tall, 2 ¼ inches wide and 1 ½ inches thick. It depicts a group of Chinese goldfish swimming in a weed filled pond. The gold hairs (or needles) make this well painted bottle even more interesting. The artist Shi Qing studied at Zhejiang Academy of Art. In 1983, he studied under Master Wang Guan-Yu. He is well known for his paintings of landscape, birds and flowers. Recently he has produced a number of studies of goldfish. The bottle is well hollowed and polished. It has natural coral top. It is in excellent condition.
