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 !

Hi Giovanni

Hahaha, yes. It can be use every year!

Actually, it was a souvenir made by a Hong Kong dealer many years ago for his clients.

Merry Christmas!

Dear Richard,
 
       I had one of those, years ago. I gave it away to a Christian friend.
I should post my 'Christmas bottle' here in the 'Happy Holidays! thread' , the one with the red, green and clear paste gems, like the example at the Chester Beatty Library in Dublin.

Steven, could you oblige me?
Thank you,
Joey

Dear Giovanni,

    I've decided to move my 17 or 18 bottles of assorted materials (ie, NOT the Jades or B & Ws in Ireland or the IPSBs in Israel), back to Israel.

    While I love looking at my IPSBs, when I take out a box or two  (though usually, I take out a whole category, such as my Zhou Leyuan bottles, which is 3 boxes (30 bottles); or my Wang Xisan group (13 bottles), etc.), the snuff bottles of assorted materials such as hardstone, organic, etc, are more appealing in a tactile way. I like holding my IPSBs, but need to look at them;  the others I can just hold and enjoy that way. This one will be returning to Israel along with the rest of this small group.
 
Shabbat Shalom and Merry Christmas from Jerusalem,
Joey
