This Chinese snuff bottle community forum is dedicated to the novice, more experienced, and expert collectors. Topics are intended to cover all aspects and types of bottle collecting. To include trials, tribulations, identifying, researching, and much more.
We also freely pour out our pains of spending money, only to later find that our choice in a bottle was not as we expected ! There is no extra charge for our "pain management" program !
We are also working extra hard towards supporting, and giving well deserved recognition to all new and upcoming student artists of "Very Modern" inside painted bottles.
Among other things, donations help keep the forum free from Google type advertisements, and also make it possible to purchases additional photo hosting MB space.
Forum Bottle In The Spotlight !
This special bottle has come up from the dusty catacombs, identified as Zi Yizi painted. He did not produce a huge body of works, and only produced thirty one examples that are known to exist. This might be one of the 22 known undated examples, or might be a 23rd example. My guess is that this is a newly discovered #23. This rare bottle is destined for Joey's collection.. Congratulations on this ultra rare and important bottle Joey!
