Blue Porcelain Purse Shaped Snuff Bottle

Circa: 1800-1840
Height: 7 cm

This interesting snuff bottle is rendered in blue glaze porcelain in the form of a hanging purse. The front and reverse show butterflies and plants. The stopper appears to be lacquered. In our opinion the subject matter, workmanship and material suggest a 1800-1840 date for this snuff bottle.
