Description: An exquisite Peiking Glass Snuff bottle was made to imitate a fine quality of rock crystal. By excellent skill, the well made small bottle was molded with motifs with a Chinese legend-Xu Wu The Shepherd. Or in another metaphor- Xan Young Kai Tai - lucks always come in triple or more, this snuff bottle was done with near-real imitation of a crystal piece in transparent quality and in weight, all these were highly recommended skills in traditional glass making industry. By a full round size, an original agate stopper was kept well except loss of dipper. Date: Qing Dynasty (19th century) Height: 6.4cm (without cap) Width:5.5cm Depth: 4.3cm
