Dear all,
I'm discovering this thread and wondering whether an intriguing bottle which I bought years ago could fall in this category. It is of white porcelain, with a hasty underglaze blue enameling, in an unusual poach form (the form, but not the decoration similar to an example in the Bloch collection). The mouth is in a rather square shape and it bears an (indecipherable?) inscription at the neck. Any suggestion?

Best wishes

Georges

Dear Georges,

        Welcome Back! Long time, no hear!
         It looks like a beautiful little bottle, but you HAVE to make the bottle visible on a single screen when blown up!
It is impossible to view as you've got it posted at present.
Best,
Joey

Sorry Joey, I lost the practice. Isn't this to small?

PS: I just finished writing/editing a book with John Benjamins that took all my time...

I think this may be a Quimper type snuff bottle...

Dear Joey, John Benjamins is a scientific publisher from Amsterdam, Smiley


Dear George, excuse my ignorance: what's a "Quimper type" SB?

George, do you mean pottery produced in Quimper, France? I have seen some scent bottles with colourful decorations produced there, but no blue and white and no chinese inscriptions...
