Chinese amber snuff bottle
$1300

A Chinese amber snuff bottle carved with four rats sitting on a fruit. It is natural amber of honey hue with some lighter flashes. The detailed rendering of the rats is exquisite; the hair on the tails is tactile and the body forms life like. This would be a worthy addition to any good snuff bottle collection. age: 19 C. size: 6 cm long. condition: excellent. The cover , I think, is possibly a replacement.
