Ruby Red Snuff Bottle

Height: 2-7/8 inches

Width: 1-3/8

With Jadeite Stopper

 

This elegant red glass snuff bottle imitates ruby. The translucent glass is finely worked and the spoon is clearly visible through the well-hollowed body. This elongated shape was popular during the first half of the 19th. century especially amongst glass bottles. The foot of the bottle is gently indented which is consistent with the period.

In our opinion the workmanship, material and subject matter suggest a date of 1800-1850 for this bottle.
