In what appears to be the form of a seated Maitreya Buddha, this snuff bottle is carved in what the former owner claimed is white agate capped by a green jade top. Clearly a semi precious stone but since we have never encountered white agate, we are uncertain of the classification. Well carved and hollowed, with signs on the base of having been cut using the old "cord" method. In overall excellent condition. 2.6" in height and 1.6" in width at the base.
