Exquisite bottle, Charll.

Would I be right in thinking that most of this type of bottle are soft paste rather than hard paste?

Tom,

These concentric ring bottles seems to have balanced mix in production of both soft and hard paste forms from what I've observed.   A few years ago I would have said most were hard paste, but recent observations indicate there are a lot of soft paste bottles in circulation.

Dear Charll,
it would be very interesting to know why soft paste is so common in the snuff bottles field and so rarely seen on bigger porcelain ware. There must be a reason for that.
Kind regards
Giovanni

Dear Giovanni,

     Dr. Stephen Little suggested to me that the reason snuff bottles and other small objects were often done in soft paste, was because it was easier for scholars to find small scale artisans to make the pieces in soft paste, and to have more of an input. I've seen small covered boxes, water droppers, and many other small wares in soft paste.

     It did not need kilns as hot as those producing hard paste wares, and could be produced in Beijing, etc., rather than just in Jingdezhen.
     Best,
Joey
