Height: 2 ¾ inches, Width: 2 inches
Qing Dynasty, 1840-1880
This snuff bottle shows a single blue glass overlay on translucent glass depicting blossoming peonies. The peony is considered an auspicious flower and is often depicted as a wish for health and longevity. The bottle rests on a raised blue glass foot ring and the bottle itself is well hollowed. The stopper consists of translucent glass. In our opinion the workmanship, subject matter and material suggest a Qing Dynasty date for this handsome snuff bottle.
