General information about the Site

This Chinese snuff bottle community forum is dedicated to the novice, more experienced, and expert collectors. Topics are intended to cover all aspects and types of bottle collecting. To include trials, tribulations, identifying, researching, and much more.

We also freely pour out our pains of spending money, only to later find that our choice in a bottle was not as we expected ! There is no extra charge for our "pain management" program !

We are also working extra hard towards supporting, and giving well deserved recognition to all new and upcoming student artists of "Very Modern" inside painted bottles.

Among other things, donations help keep the forum free from Google type advertisements, and also make it possible to purchases additional photo hosting MB space.

Forum Bottle In The Spotlight !

Another extra special bottle that our fellow collector Pin shared. The "thousand word" classical text is painted by LI Ruchen with a beautifully shaped bottle of upright rectangular form, and sloping shoulders. Congratulations Pin !

I had a great day last Friday at the 2014 Asia Regional Snuff Bottle Exhibition held in the Kreta Ayer Community Centre in Chinatown, Singapore.

Most enjoyable was meeting the artists and particularly our Singapore-based fellow bloggers Richard Baey and Pin

   

Thanks to Richard and Pin's help with translation, I was able to meet and talk to some artists whose bottles I have, here with Song Yiming and Ma Baoku

   

and particularly to meet master artist Lu Jianguang again after 15 years and show him the set of six Kangxi Emperor bottles I bought so many years ago when he was resident artist at CAC Hong Kong

 

My thanks to Richard and Pin for their companionship, talk and particularly help with translation. A great day which I will remember for many years.

Hi Geoff

I glad to learn that you have a good time!

I look forward to meeting you again soon.

My apology for not being a good host as there were too many activities happening at the same time!

No apologies necessary Richard - you were a good host to me and others.

Without you and Pin as my translators, I could have done very little but smile.

Thanks for your comments. It was a really enjoyable day.

For those members unfamiliar with Singapore Tiger bottles, here is a photograph of one of the four Pin and I purchased



The others looked very similar.

And it still has the original stopper! Impressive.  Grin
It looks like fun. A pity I was already home.  Is this an annual meeting?
best,
Joey

Hi Joey

Yes, it is supposed to be an annual affair hosted by different country of the Asia Snuff Bottle Association, namely China, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Each country is to take turn hosting the event each year.

Regards.

Dear Richard,
    Can you please send me the info for joining The Asia Snuff Bottle Association, or how to organise The Israel Snuff Bottle Group/Society/Association, so we can join the above body. Israel is in (west) Asia, after all.
Best,
 Joey
