These two snuff bottles are Peking glass, created to look like gemstone, one jade, one agate. Both measure 2 3/4" high and have stoppers, but no spoon attached. (The darker stopper may be stone, as it has considerable inclusions and is heavy). Both are well done, and give the appearance of stone. The "jade" bottle has a very soft sheen, similar to what actual jade would look like, and has a small foot. Both in good condition, the jade one with a slight chip on the lip. Price listed for both ...

Measuring 12" high, this fanciful carving is by Medardo Blas of the San Pedro Cajonos village in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. Medardo was known for very creative carvings, and his sons and daughter have continued his legacy, now carving their own creations. This form is rather unique for Medardo, and is likely an early work by him. It has the same surreal quality for which Sergio Bustamante is known. This lovely creature is a rather voluptuous woman, with parrot head and reptilian looking ha...
