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 !

Dear Eric,

     That looks more like what I think of as tourmaline. It looks like a very sweet little bottle. Is it well hollowed? What is the subject ? It is a bit hard to tell.
Best,
Joey

Dear Giovanni,

     I think you are right: it is a melon or fruit form pebble bottle.
Well spotted.
Best,
Joey

Yes, the way the base is carved suggests it is a melon or similar fruit.

Nice looking tourmaline - does it display good dichroism? When held up to a light and slowly turned around, there should be almost no light transmission when viewed 'end on'.

Dear Eric,

I didn't notice the butterfly. That confirms it is indeed a melon!
I have an amethyst bottle which is melon shaped with a butterfly.
