Dear Kaja,

Sorry for late reply. Just read the thread.

I bought the ' winter ' bottle in Oct 1993. The bottle was painted in the same year.

Dear friends,

Thank you all for appreciating the bottles.
Like Joey, I like the winter scenery in the first bottle I posted. It is very classical in painting style.

The second bottle was one of my first calligraphy bottles where the calligraphy standard is not that fantastic.

Dear Joey,

The snuff bottle ( 89mm high ) I posted was painted by Li Guangli ( 李广立 )in 1993. He was of the Ji School in Hebei, and started his IP career in 1978. Unfortunately, he had a blood clot in 2008.

I attach another bottle of mine done by Guangli and Peng Qi ( 鹏启 ) in 1990. Guangli did the calligraphy.

Looking forward to your forthcoming visit to Singapore.

Best wishes to you in this first day of 2018.

Dear all,

I am resending what I posted a short while ago ( it might have failed to be sent off ).

2017 has been an enjoyable year for me on this Forum, reading all the interesting sharing and lamenting ( over missed auction bid ! ). On this last day of 2017, I wish all of you and your loved ones a Happy and Fruitful 2018.

I am posting one of my favourite inside painted bottle, hoping it will not add cold to most of you living in the winter zone right now ! Keep warm !

Regards,
Inn Bok

Kaja,

That is an interesting cylindrical bottle with floral design going around the circumference.

The two Chinese characters at the base are ' Qian Long ' reading from right to left.

By the way, what is the height of the bottle ? Did it come with a stopper/spoon ?

In the meantime, may I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful and fruitful 2018 !

Ha ha, Kaja,

You could be the only one in our midst to be hooked on
snuff bottle via the ‘ barter trade ‘ route  Cheesy Cheesy
Do they call this the ‘sharing economy’ ?

As suggested by Joey, please post pictures of your
collection when convenient.

Joey,

I was not trying to find out if those embellished stones are really gemstones.

I was thinking if you were to shine on the bottle, how it will turn out, visually   Cheesy

Hi Matthais,

Thank you for sharing.

Even though it is a modern bottle, I see that your double overlay bottle is well carved.
The size appears to be just right to be cupped and fondled in the palm. Enjoy the bottle and forget about the age of it.

If you are already collecting snuff bottles, maybe you will like to share your collecting journey and experience so far ?

Have you tried casting some lights to those ' gems ' ?

It is indeed a crab with half of its body outside a shell.

Dear Adrian,

Natural crystal is appealing. I believe your bottle was prepared for inside painting which was never done.

Dear all,

As I will be a bit preoccupied tomorrow, I shall post this fun bottle earlier.

It depicts a crab crawling out of a shell. 60mm long and I believe of moss agate material.

Dear Joey and Adrian,

Sorry for a very much delayed response. Was a bit tied down with helping to look after our grandson ( it is year end school holiday season in S'pore ) !

The Friday fun bottle I posted was made from deer antler ( dyed somewhat ).
