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 all,
back home after a surgery that kept me nine days at the hospital. Now I need about one month of convalescence for full recovery. I can't stay hours at the computer, but everything went well and I am very happy to back within you.

Dear Giovanni,

Nine days in a hospital doesn't sound like a small surgery, I hope you didn't suffer much.
Get well Soon!! Very happy you are back. Grin

Dear Giovanni,

       I wish you a full and speedy recovery! I did not realise you were to be so long in hospital. I thought it was for 2-3 days.
Best,
Joey

That's an understatement ... !   Say, just a heads up to all from this recent computer purchase..  It seems Windows 10 is super sensitive to everything.. Apparently it is wise make sure what ever we add or install is not any sort of old versions or equipment.. With all of Geek Squads tech knowledge, it even took them two full weeks, and the transfer of my files from one computer to another, not once, but four of their brand new computers only to finally realize a simple monitor adapter from a two year old monitor caused all those computers to immediately crash...

Windows ten is a bit awkward , and can not share any further experiences yet, but "very important" to not try and plug in, or add on in any way older versions and equipment..

Any way... Things seem to be running smoothly ...

Dear George,

I fully agree about your stand on windows 10.
Gotten a Surface pro 4 that runs on the same platform almost one month ago. Still have not figure out how to use it.

Cheers,

For a long time I avoided Macs/Iphones but recently have been converting into the Apple world.  I had enough of all the problems/issues/viruses/etc. etc...
