Ileney,
Iím glad you posted another one, because Iím curious about this type after Giovanniís post. If I had to guess, based on his post, the crackle on the foot is the giveaway?

Cheers,
Rube

Joey,

You're too kind!  It's not, but I know he needs help with a few others.  I'll DM you the details.

Thanks again,

Rube.

George and Joey,

Thanks for your comments!

Samson,

Thanks, too!  I appreciate the help with translation!  (Glad to know I was at least able to id 1929, and "month".)

Cheers,

Rube.

George,

Thanks for the information!  I'm sorry I don't know why I didn't photograph the fourth side, I think I photographed one side twice, by accident.

Joey,

I appreciate your offer, and agree with you, however, it's not my bottle to change.

Cheers,

Rube.

Hi again,

Here's another bottle I was hoping someone could help me with:
It's a commemorative bottle, but I was hoping someone could help with the translation on the other side?
Also, is it possible that this was also painted by Liu Shouben?

Thanks for any help,

Hi Again,

Here's another bottle I'd like to share, and hopefully get some help with it's translation:
It's glass, and signed Yong Shoutian, and measures 3 3/8" w/o bead stopper with walrus ivory stopper.
I'm assuming it's from Dream of the Red Chamber because of the man in the tree?

Thanks for any assistance,

Rube.

Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone can help with this Ye Family bottle, measuring 2 9/16" w/o glass stopper?  I know it was painted in 1929, but can't make out the top character in the second column.  Also, wondering if this is depicting a scene from Dream of the Red Chamber?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Rube.

Stew,

Giovanni has a brilliant way of looking inside a bottle:  He uses an led strip light from a hardware store and sticks it in the bottle, which illuminates it really well, thus showing inside profiles.

I need to try it, myself.

Cheers,

Rube.

Stew,

This is nice!

George,

What's the story on the flat sided bottle?  Fit into the Manchu rider's boots?

Cheers,

Fantastic bottle! I also like Suo ZhenHai, and hope to acquire one of the late artist's bottles someday. 

 Congratulations,

Jason,

I tend to agree with Charll and George, that these two bottles were from the same shop.  And I think I'll go out on a limb and date them to around 1971 or just before.  I came across this advertisement in the back of The Snuff Bottle Collector, Feb, 1971, no. 4.  I think these were the bottles being sold. I think one has stain and one doesn't just to mix it up, and if you look closely, the apocryphal mark on the foot is the same except for one extra horizontal line on the fourth character.

Brian,
Was your grandfather a member of the Hong Kong Snuff Bottle Society, as well as the ICSBS?  I venture to guess that Joanna Lau Sullivan was also, and that she bought hers from Y.F. Yang, too.  What's the dimensions of yours?  Hers measured 2 1/2" tall (including stopper) by 2" wide.  Incidentally, I was shocked when Charll posted her bottle from Ebay.  It just so happens that my brother bought it!  I think he paid  too much for it, but it's lovely, all the same.
Cheers,

Rube.

Joey,

I think it's still legal, to buy and sell elephant ivory within the USA, but the items need to be documented or appraised as being at least one hundred years old, or prior to 1916?
