Snowflake with Red Overlay Glass Snuff Bottle

Chinese workmanship
Circa: 1880-1900
Height: 7.5 cm


This interesting red glass overlay snuff bottle depicts a Chi-lin mythical beast exhaling the book of knowledge and a Sage riding a donkey on the reverse side. In our opinion the subject matter, workmanship and material suggest a 1880-1900 date for this bottle.

From an American Collection, acquired from Ashkenazie & Co. circa 1990.
