This is a rare and unique (one-of-a-kind) Snuff Bottle made from Gourd. I HAVE HAD AND HANDLED THOUSANDS OF SNUFF BOTTLES, AND I HAVE NOT SEEN A SIMILAR BOTTLE BEFORE). Is is shaped in the form of an old Chinese Wine Storage Canister. It has a square slightly raised footing with a raise oval pad in the middle. It is molded and shaped into squares and similar height rectangles to form a canister with a long cone shaped neck, and wide mouth. The material has also been carved all around in imitation of old brown leather. Its color has darkened with age. It comes with an orange aventurine stopper and bronze collar. This rare and curious bottle is in excellent preserved condition. Bottle Measurements Height: 2.12 inches (5.4cm) - not including stopper length: 1.41 inches (3.6cm) Width: 1.06 inches (2.7cm) Weight: 0.6 ounces
