Dear all,

I recently came across this pink glass snuff bottle with a Chinese poem inscribed on it. Looks interesting. According to the dealer, the theme of the poem is related to snuff. I'm considering adding it into my collection. Any thoughts?

Pretty bottle .. Can not help with knowing the poem for you. Hopefully someone here will be able to confirm the snuff connection for you.

I think fairly modern bottle..

Thank you for sharing it !

Thanks George! Anyone else? Your thoughts please. This forum seems rather quiet these days... Huh

I would think that the bottle is quite new too.... Having said that, I think the calligraphy is quite nicely done.

Thanks Pin!

By the way, if you know Chinese, here is the complete poem carved on it: 流播自遐方爭看,帶火嘗辟寒同。麴檗解渴勝茶湯,堪助唫哦趣能。增齒頰得霏霏,呼吸處雲霧滿衣裳。

Hi

This is a poem by Ming dynasty poet Hu Ran You (胡然有).

For your reference.

Regards.

Hi Samson,

I cannot comment on the dating, but the calligraphy appears to be well executed. If the price is right, and the glass isn't flawed, I'd go for it.

Dear Samson,

If you like Chinese calligraphy on bottles, this is a good one to consider .

Yes, the calligraphy work really draws me. The color is interesting too. Any opinion on its value? The dealer is asking for HKD18,000 which is about USD2,300. I think there should be room for negotiation... By the way, could someone tell me how I can better estimate its age! Appreciate your views!

IMO.... I think the price is way too much...

With that money and a little bit of luck and good knowledge... You will get a very nice bottle.... Be patient.

I think it is a nice bottle, but feel it is only about a hundred dollar bottle.

Dear Samson,
 
     I agree with what was written, but would say that the beautiful calligraphy is worth US$150.
Best,

Thanks everyone! I'm convinced! The bottle may look pretty but it just doesn't worth the asking price. As much as I'd like to have it, I'm not ready to pay unreasonable price for it. So I guess I'll just save my money for a real nice one in the future. For now I'll just carry on with bottle hunting!  Cheesy
