Here you can see other kinds of ivory (Walrus, wild boar and hippo), but their visualisation can change with the age, spice and the part of the tusk.

Dear Jason,

I have taken in acount the walrus, because in the center is showed a small part looks like Secundary dentine; but due the shape of the growing lines I'm thinking that it is wild boar.

Dear Joey,

I have found the perfect picture to show the wild boar ivory.

On the other hand, are you agree with the age of the item?

Best,
Albert.

Hello,
This week I bought a new SB to my collection, I liked the stile and work, and it was "very cheap".I'm thinking that it would be from 1960 in my opinión. The seller said that the item was made on bone, but I saw strage lines like Ivory elephant and I bought it. After having it on my hand during several minutes, I notice that the item was made on other kind of ivory.
Could you tell me if are you agree with me that it is made on wild pig ivory?

Thanks,
Albert.

Both minerals are mainly formed with SiO2, but agate usually has bands. Perhaps the seller does not know about minerals.
Send pics to show to us your new bottle!!!

Dear Joey,

Thanks for offering a dinner to the forum members; It will be wonderful to share a dinner with you and the other forum members and visit the ICSBS Baltimore Convention. Unfortunately I have no more holidays during this year because I need to save days for sharing with my faraway family during the winter holidays.

I wish you had a good time!
Albert.

Dear Stewsnuff,

I'm not an expert on jade snuff bottles, indeed, I never have had one jade SB, but I have seen to many on the books, antiques shops and on internet, and it's looks a bit strange to me. I'm sure that the others members of the forum can help you better than me. Any way, strange to me Grin!

Dear Albert,

    Why 'curious'? The stopper looks right to me. Do you mean the way the 'cork' has been done? That is more unusual, but still seen. I'm sure, as Tom has described, that twine was often used, but has been replaced by corks, easily available the last 50+ years. Giovanni and I have discussed whether the layered thin cork stoppers, which one sees, as they crumble into dust [and one can see the layers!  Wink], are not simply made of very thinly sliced leather, which certainly would have been easily available in north China.

Dear Adrian,

    You have a really nice late 18th/early 19th C. plain Agate. Did you actually float it, by putting a small piece of cellotape over the opening and placing it in a bowl of lukewarm water? Lukewarm, because if it is indeed a floater, strong temperature changes may crack it.

   I've seen two bottles cracked from the being held by someone whose hand, a moment before, had held a cold mug of beer or of coke. The first, at the home of the late Neal & Frances Hunter, of Laguna Hills, CA, was an overlay glass. The second, also in the home of friends, was the 'floater Agate'. Thank G-D, I was not the 'culprit' in either case.


    Since, I always insist guests rub their hands together, to warm them, if they want to hold a bottle of mine after holding a cold glass. I suggest it, when visiting others' collections.

Best,
Joey

Dear Joey,

Thanks for your explanation,very interesting, until today I haven't had time to read it!

Best,
Albert.

Nice jade bottle, very white! regarding to the age, it looks modern to me, because the picture of the mouth show that the bottle maybe is not very well hollowed, I saw it on a modern jade bottles.

Albert.
