This is a fine, well-hallowed, Dendritic Chalcedony Snuff Bottle of flattened upright rectangular form, with rounded, sloping shoulders, round neck, a flat wide lip, and an elongated oval foot rim surrounding a shallowly recessed flat foot. The semi-translucent stone has random fern-like intrusions of a gray-blue color that cover most of the bottle, over a mottled ground of brown, cafe-latte, and olive green colors. It comes with a green jadeite stopper with metal collar. This excellent looking bottle is in remarkable preserved condition.
