This is an excellent example of one of the most sought-after kinds of porcelain snuff-bottles. It has a good jadeite stopper and dates from the Daoguang reign (1821-1850). On one side there is a typical close-up of a cricket and on the other a slightly more unusual depiction of a cricket climbing over its open cage. It has fanciful mask handles on each shoulder. Height: 6.3 cm; Width: 5.4 cm. Condition: Very good, with a small abraded patch to the glaze on the rim.
