A Chinese glass snuff bottle made to imitate agate. Though simple in appearance these bottles were very difficult to make as the glass had to be first striated and then given darker patches whilst molten, before blowing to form the bottle. A genuine old bottle. The base has an old collectors label mistakenly identifying the bottle as agate.

Approximately 5.8 cm high. Fine condition. No stopper.

Please study the photographs.
