All Items : Antiques : Regional Art : Asian : Chinese : Snuff Bottles : Pre 1900 item #1187821 (stock #ar196)
From a collection of antique Peking glass snuff bottles, this form is quite elegant, with glass that simulates a caramel colored agate with darker spots. The top is tiger's eye, with a bone spoon, and is likely a later replacement. The bottle has a smooth, waxy surface, with slight irregularities that lend to its realistic appearance and demonstrate its age. It measures 2 3/4" high, 3 1/4" with the stopper and is a beautiful example of masterful glass making.

From a collection of 19th century Peking glass snuff bottles, this one was created to look like jade, and has a soft luster and feel that is quite similar to the actual stone. The stopper has broken off from the spoon, which remains lodged in the bottle, and is a likely later replacement. The top appears to be stone, and is likely jadeite or serpentine. The bottle measures 2 1/2" (2 3/8" with stopper) and is in good condition, with some chipping on the foot.

From a collection of antique Chinese Peking glass snuff bottles, this ovoid bottle has a jadeite stone stopper and bone spoon (these appear to be later replacements). It was made to simulate goldstone, with a black body and gold flecks, and measures 2 1/4" high (2 1/2" including stopper). Nice smooth surface, with slight irregularities typical of hand work, this is a fine example of the quality and diversity of Chinese Peking glass.
