Snuff bottle in white jade with antique patina. Bone colour . Shaped like an eggplant. Well executed details, especially the irregularity on the stalks creating differences in level imitating the naturalness of the vegetable. Particularly difficult work to execute on jade for a very subtle result, almost invisible, can only be felt by touch or by grazing light. You can hardly tell from the photos.Stopper in bronze and coral. Traces of gilding.Only the stopper, the stem and the spoon are lost. Height: 55cm Good condition. Traces of black lacquer.
