Hi everybody,

I have bought 3 snuff bottles a couple of weeks ago.
They're are all cameo glass/overlay.

This is the 1st one.
It's white peking/beijing glass, with green overlay.
Octagon shaped, enamelled.

Height: 6 cm/ 2.36 inch.
Diameter: 2,6 cm/ 1.02 inch.
Weight:  49,5 grams.

I would like to know how old it could be, and what the value would be,
if that's allowed to ask here.

I hope somebody can help me out.
Thank you very much!

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.

Hi Adrian,

The bidding could be quite intense, if you ever decide to auction your length of cloth....  Cool

Sorry but the seller has replied that she has no more stock and wasn't able to supply a manufacturers name.

Regards, Adrian.

Hi Pin,

I have been quite busy lately, so have not yet got around to reading your translated articles.
But I look forward to doing so when I have a little more time.

Hi Pin

This is really interesting - great work. I had not realised Wang Xisan's early career had been so badly affected by the Cultural Revolution.
Where do these articles come from?

Also can you identify any other well-known artists in the two group photos in Part 3?
I think I can identify one individual (non-artist) in the photo above the words "Saved At Last".

Hi Adrian,

I really like the fabric. Nice find! I would be interested in some yardage should it be available for purchase. I would like to use it for a valance in my office. I would appreciate any information you have on the source.

Thank you.
