19th century Chinese Yixing snuff bottle with enamel decoration on each side depicting different landscapes in scholarly taste with huts and bridges in the foreground and distant bays and mountains. Did not photograph well - photos came out too harsh. Well modelled, beautiful uninhibited painting with multiple colors. Excellent patina, expected dust and grime accumulation on the surface, wonderful feel of age, jadeite top stopper. Height with stopper 2 11/16 inches.
