Luke_your bottle is most unusual and I think the panels show a lot of attention to detail.  Great addition to your collection.  Inn Bok the two you shared are also very beautiful.   Thank you both for sharing these fine examples

Thanks Rube!  My husband David says that the collectors are as interesting as the bottles!   I think very special people collect Snuff Bottles!!!

Thanks Adrian.  You have a good memory!  The provenance of bottles is fascinating to me and adds to the enjoyment of  ownership.

Thanks for you kind comments Joey and Charll as I do value your opinions.   Yes, I was very sad to hear this about Mary Ann. This bottle is very special to me because it was hers and also because it is beautiful.   Charll, I guess I did not communicate with you that I had made  a commitment  to buy the bottle when I showed it to you.  I was thrilled when you liked it too.

Glass, of elegant spade shape, painted in famille rose enamels, one side with a gardener adjusting his shoe in the garden, beneath a pink magnolia with two wicker baskets filled with flowers, the other side with an elegant lady standing on a terrace, leaning on a side table and gazing into a garden at a bush and above, a window with a delicate screen.  The neck of the bottle is surrounded by floral motifs and the base has an iron red mark in archaic script Qianlong nianzhi.  I love this type of bottle and am thrilled to have a bottle that has been in the collection of Mary Ann Bresee.  She was very kind to me when I first joined the ICSBS. She died in 2017. 

Yangzhou School, 1750-1795
Provenance: Mary Ann Bresee, Florida

Glad this group got together in Liverpool.  I saw some photos of the display of bottles.  It is always a treat when snuff bottle friends gather!

  I know Susan was very excited about the terracotta soldiers as she mentioned it to me in an email last week.  I plan to share a new treasure that I purchased from her in San Francisco at the meeting there in May.  I hope all will like it!  Best Jo

I would be interested to have the list of hammer prices.  I did not bid but I am interested to see what some of the bottles brought.  You can send me a message with the prices if you don't mind.  I have the catalog and would like to add the sold prices.

I will be interested to hear also.

Nice simple bottle with clean lines, I like it!  Yes I think it is nephrite also.

Yes it could!!!  If you do see any manufacturer name or number on the fabric once you get it let us know.  We might be able to trace it down unless it is a vintage piece.  Enjoy your beautiful find Adrian.

Too bad!  Once you get it see if it has a manufacturers name or pattern number.  If so I will be happy to research and see if we can find the source.  I think many of the collectors would love to have some of this fabric.  I  also have an interior designer friend who might be able to find it for us if it is one of those fabrics that has to be purchased through a designer.  The thrill of the hunt for snuff bottles and snuff bottle fabric!!!

The convention was fabulous in every way.  Sorry Richard Baey was not there taking beautiful photos each day like last year. I wsh you all could have been in London for the 49th convention.
