Rare antique snuff bottle of Peking glass simulating moss agate and with an interesting surface. Peking glass was used to simulate all kinds of materials. And this is an exceptionally successful rendition of moss agate. Later top, well matched with composite spoon. Late 19th century to early Republic, about 100 years old.

Note, I replaced the composite top with a simulated pearl top with spoon, see the last 2 pictures. 晚清民国初老料鼻烟 半透光 全美.

About 2.3" tall. Good condition with normal wear from usage. No chips cracks or repairs. Good transluscence, see the sun going through the narrow mouth in the 4th close-up.
