According to the painting style and shape of the bottle, the bottle should be painted in 2002 instead of 1972. Its well painted, but it could be a student bottle at that time.

Thanks for sharing Adrian!

It seems that you have become an expert on YYT, you are right, both are YYT's examples.
I am with Joey on the bottle shape, but the brush strokes point to YYT, and  the seal on the bottle is a Yu tian seal.

Thanks for sharing additional photos Kaja!

One of the photo was too big size , so I went ahead and resized if for you. Please be sure resize the file dimension no more than 1000pixel  wide, so that the photo is fit the screen properly.

I agree with Charll and Pin on the comments of the bottle, I also not eligible to give you a very specific date range, but will give it a try,  1880-1940 is my guess.

Thanks for sharing, Kaja

It looks like a very nice hair crystal to me, very nice shape, and hairs are very attractive as well.

If you don't mind, I would love to see a couple of more photos of the mouth of the bottle and the bottom too.

Dear Matthias,

Thank you for sharing your bottle.

Joey and Pin are right about the bottle, its fairly new( but its not made in recently 20 years as I suspect, it could be from 1970s if I am right) .

I also think the bottle has a very unique color combinations, quite unusual.

Please find a couple of bottles with the Mallow flower, altho not the double overlay, but you should be able to how the old bottles carved which is not shown on your bottle.

Happy collecting!

well said Tom and Ilene!!

Our Snuff forum is the best place to share snuff bottle collecting experience! Thanks you all of your veteran collectors here share your precious experience with us which made the Forum so special.

Yes, we have to Thanks George for creating it for us !!

I actually thought about about why internet forums are somehow going down. Besides what you have mentioned, I think another reason could be the other social medias like facebook, Instagram have been changing the life style of people, people are more rely on the cellphone instead of the computer.

Happy holiday!

Dear Ilene,

So sorry to hear your story which also happened to me a couple of times, I guess we can do nothing about it beside leaving a negative feedback. I always check feedbacks on the seller before I place any bids, even though, it still happened to me a couple of times. Embarrassed

Anyway, let it go, and happy collecting:)
