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 YT,

     I'd like a time machine, to go back to 1915 to 1935, and buy up all the Imperial treasures on offer! And sleep on a kang in a hutong near the Forbidden City...

I agree - I had a Ruby Zoisite bottle I bought from YF Yang between 1974 and 1977, made from a stone brought back to the PRC by Chinese workers on the Tanzania-Zambia Railroad between 1970 and 1975.
So chances are it was barely finished when I bought it. Grin
Wow! First owner. Not really a thing to be proud of, if you collect antiques. Roll Eyes Grin

Unless you are 160, then you can claim to have a 19th C. Zoisite bought first hand
