Inscribed Porcelain Snuff Bottle


Circa: Nineteenth Century

Height: Height: 7.5 cm


This interesting porcelain baluster shaped snuff bottle shows a lengthy inscription

on a white glaze background together with stylized fungus (lingzhi) on a green glaze field.


The stopper is carnelian agate toped with a miniature pearl. In our opinion, the subject matter, workmanship and material suggest a 19th Century date.
