Vintage, possibly antique snuff bottle. Colors, quality and depth of enameling and the medallion on the bottom have not been seen for many decades. This bottle has designs relating to flower arrangements and a scholars desk top. It is about 2 3/4" tall. Really detailed workmanship, a time consuming art that is not now done so this bottle is a great find at a great price. At least 60 years old.
