Smokey Quartz Snuff Bottle

Height: 2.5 inches, Width: 1.25 inches

With Black Glass Stopper

Qing Dynasty, 1800-1850

 

This elegant miniature snuff bottle is rendered from a pebble of smokey quartz, so named because of it’s dark coloration. The bottle is well hollowed and rests on a raised foot ring.

The stopper is a pebble form piece of dark glass. In our opinion, the subject matter, workmanship and material suggests a Qing Dynasty date for this handsome snuff bottle.
