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 !

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...

I agree and did consider Apple.. Never had any issues at all with the Performa line years ago.  I do like them, but the cost difference is considerable..

Dear George,

     I have been a fanatical 'Apple/MacIntosh' loyalist since my first computer, an Apple 2E Plus in Sept. 1985! It was 128K, with 55k desktop, and a floppy disk drive. I had to print on paper that had rows of holes down each side.
I LOVE this brand. And they are almost NEVER targeted by hackers.

    Best,
Joey

Dear George,

     That APPLE 2E Plus 128K computer with an HP printer set me back US$5,000 in Sept. 1985, too! But it was worth it! I did my whole almost 3 year long Israel Licenced Tour Guide Course on it. And I could print up copies of Trip Reports to hand in, and run up copies to help friends.
It was 'state of the art', though I bet most really serious computer people here on the Forum will be in shock that I EVER had 'state of the art' computer stuff!!!  Grin Roll Eyes Wink

Best to all,
Joey
